In a month full of love, candy hearts, and flowers it can be easy to fall into the trap of the "spare no expense" thought process of expressing your feelings to your companion. I'll admit that I enjoy the sappiness of Valentine's Day and or any celebration of love like anniversaries and such. I'll even admit especially when our love was young that I would equate the amount of money spent on a gift to how much love and value my Valentine placed on our relationship.
Maybe it's getting older and thus wiser. Maybe it's having children that help deplete the ole' bank account a little faster. Maybe it's appreciating the surprise of flowers much more on any "regular" day vs. the holiday when they're twice as much. I'm not sure.
What I do know is that as I've aged and as I have recognized my spouse's love language, I have learned that the secret to an amazing relationship is in everyday romance. I've also learned there are incredibly less expensive ways to show my love and be quite the romantic. Check out these easy and super cheap ways to show love, and try one out.
