Sweetest Day -- a day to surprise, delight and bring a smile to that special someone in your life! What person wouldn't appreciate a reminder that you value your relationship?
Help this holiday leap out of the shadows of its "relatives" -- Valentine's (by purpose) and Halloween (by timing) -- and stand on its own! Critics complain that it's only a commercial ploy to sell cards, candy, and flowers but Sweetest Day offers couples an excuse to connect. It's a celebration of friendship, romance, and love.
Let's face it. Life today seems to race ahead at an ever more hectic pace. With pressure to become a master juggler of work and family schedules, many of us fall exhausted into bed at night -- dreading the call of the alarm to "do it again" the next day. Romance and intimacy (not to mention GREAT S-E-X) tend to sink to "low priority." Move your relationship up the ladder with a jump onto the "Sweetest Day" bandwagon!
Pleasurable foods can ignite a relationship. Fresh and vibrant colors, vivid and alive aromas and varied taste enhance your ability to receive pleasure, radiate joy and freely give pleasure to others.
Since an over-abundance of holidays circle around candy, we've offered alternatives. Try these suggestions to make your "Sweetest Day" even sweeter without calories!
