Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! For most people it’s a time focused on chocolate covered strawberries, candy hearts, and trying to get a last minute reservation to a fancy restaurant. For others it may be a time to soak up the single life and hang out with your friend group – Galentine’s Day! No matter your big plans for this Valentine’s Day, remember it’s not about the physical possessions or gifts. It’s about being with the people you love and who make your life special.
Maybe even try something new this Valentine’s Day. Instead of spending $20 on flowers that are – let’s face it – going to die in probably a week, spend it on an experience! Another option could be instead of going to that really expensive restaurant that may take a large chunk of your paycheck, you could plan a romantic dinner at home. If you’ve never heard of Pinterest, then you’re missing out on thousands of easy dinner ideas. If you’re feeling more low key this Valentine’s Day, then try doing something nice for someone else. There are plenty of hospitals looking for people to send Valentine’s Day cards to sick children in the hospital. I’ve even found ones that are online Valentine’s Day cards that are completely free and take less than 2 minutes to send. It may seem like something small, but it could completely brighten a small child’s day.
If you’re going to be in the Atlanta area, then you should definitely check this out! Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is striving to make this Valentine’s Day meaningful. “As a community, we’ll stand together and shine lights at our patients as they shine lights back through their room windows. Just bring a flashlight or you can use the flashlight on your cell phone. Wearing red is encouraged.” This event will be located at three locations on February 14th – Egleston hospital garden (6:30-6:35 PM), Sidewalk across from Scottish Rite hospital (7:30-7:35 PM), and Sidewalk along the black gate at the main entrance of Hughes Spalding (6:00-6:05 PM).
