The Perfect Valentine’s Date

The Perfect Valentine’s Date

The perfect date – when you’re head over heels in love with someone, planning the perfect date is no small task. Maybe it’s because you’re just not all that great at planning dates, and that’s okay. Maybe it’s because you think that nothing you can plan will ever be good enough for the one you love. I mean, people say it all time, “it’s the thought that counts.” Is that really true? Of course!
