Flowers at the office and candy waiting at the door is a wonderful start... (Did I say start? That's right!) The time we spend with our special valentine outside of special events makes everyday special. This is the person with whom we share our deepest thoughts and dreams. We trust them to be very delicate with our hearts. Time to communicate our love, joy and fears is essential in a healthy relationship. This Valentine's Day after sending the flowers, take the time to take that loved one to the place the flowers grow.
