Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own. (A quote by H Jackson Brown Jr)
A lot of my friends on social media have been saying that they don't celebrate Valentine's day as it's too expensive. My reply to them has always been that it does not cost money to tell or show someone you love them. You don't have to buy expensive presents either. Little treats like home cooked breakfast, a walk in the park and stopping for that special cup of coffee to just relax and watch the world go by are enough for me to feel happy.
So for me everyday I spent with my husband and children is Valentine's Day. We start our weekend with a nice brunch of home made instant microwave dhokla
Followed by a nice walk by the riverside.
And finishing the day with bateta vada , home pizza and nachos. Simple food eaten with a loving family always tastes exotic.
Doesn't take much to make me feel happy. The occasion Bollywood movie or bunch of flowers get appreciated too! The important thing is to remember that you love each other and will always be around to support each other - in sickness and health.
Make everyday a Happy Valentine's Day
