A Different Kind of Valentine's Month

50% Chance of Rain in San Diego on Valentine's Day.
My wife and I decided long ago that limiting our Valentine's celebration to a single day was unfulfilling.  We changed it up and adopted the entire month of February as "Valentine's Month."  We take turns every year being in charge of the daily activities.  What a great way to celebrate love and romance.  This year, we are still enjoying Valentine's Month, however, our hours are filled with activities centered around our move to the Midwest.  It's a different kind of Valentine's month.

How do you celebrate love?  If you're limiting yourself to a single day, you're missing out.  And if your to do list is leaving you no room for romance, take a step back and figure out how to spice up your love life even in the mundane tasks, like driving to the waste dump site to unload your unwanted electronics.  Even a run to the dump with a car loaded with garbage can be romantic if you use the moment to share what's going on in your heart.

Even though it may be a little late this year to celebrate Valentine's Month for the full month, it's not too late to take advantage of leap year and finish the month on a romantic high note.  Promise yourself you will do something out of the ordinary for your loved one every day for the rest of the month.  Do the unexpected.  Take advantage of every moment, even if it's saying "I love you" in the middle of a dump yard.
