It’s Valentine’s Day week and love is in the air. What better time to celebrate ourselves?

This holiday we engage in the tradition of sending our love to our friends, family, and significant others with sentimental cards, gifts, chocolate,  jewelry, etc. We often spend Valentine’s Day doing romantic things for our loved ones; special candlelit dinners, good wine and food, or maybe a weekend away for two in a cozy inn.

We can often overlook how special and wonderful we are.

Here is my Valentine gift to all of you.
