While Valentine’s Day is a special 24 hours of getting to shower our loved ones with hugs n’ kisses, attention and red + pink candies (not to mention showering ourselves with 1/2 bottles of wine out of coffee mugs), there’s no reason not to extend Cupid’s holiday.
What’s another 24 hours for love?
The world needs more of it.
Tell someone you love that you do in fact love them. Sometimes we need to hear those things out loud, ya know?
Give someone a hug who looks in need of a hug. Don’t be stupid about it though – there are lots of homeless people outside where I work, but I’m nowhere near nice enough to wrap myself around Mr. One Piece Ski Suit in a big ol’ bear hug.
Cook for someone. Something. Anything. Who doesn’t love Kraft Mac + Cheese when they don’t have to make it themselves? Or a turkey sandwich. A good one, with lots of veggies, hummus, mustard + pepperjack cheese, please. Or perhaps a lovely salad.
Two Lover’s Salad with Wisconsin Raspberry Bellavitano, by chance?
Yes, you should make this.
Husbands, boyfriends, moms, dads, sisters, co-workers, best friends, brothers, nieces, nephews – I promise you right now they will all love it. I mean, who isn’t obsessed with pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette? Not anyone I associate with.
But you’re going to have to click here to get the recipe.
And just an FYI, it’s best enjoyed with a 1/2 bottle of wine drunk straight from a coffee mug.
