Happy Valentine Week

So here we are quickly approaching the holiday that causes so many reactions…Valentine’s Day! Some of us scoff, some sigh, some laugh, some cry! If we are a couple, we revel in the prospect of a day of candy and flowers, if we are single we cringe and avoid resturants because the world is full of happy couples that night and write this one off as another “hallmark holiday”!

  • Lovers
  • Plague
  • Travellers
