Willa Cather wrote, “Where there is great love, there are always wishes”.

We know, Valentines Day can be an overblown escapade of rushing around to find a last-minute, thoughtful gift for your sweet someone. But why not consider making it easy on yourself this go-around? Plan an elegantly simple dinner, perhaps, and while you’re at Whole Foods purchasing your hormone-free, free-range filet, why not pick up two dozen roses as a thoughtful surprise?

February is a cold month with far too many groundhogs who see their shadows. And whether she’ll admit it or not (take it from me), a bouquet of roses is a happy reprieve from these winter months. Brighten up your sweetheart’s day by taking advantage of this deal. If you give a little, you’ll get a little.

May all your wishes come true. Happy Valentines Day!
