With Valentine’s Day around the corner and people scrambling to make reservations, it can get one thinking about how hard this holiday can be. Sure, it’s great to show a little extra love and appreciation on Valentine’s Day, but expectations can be high. Instead of having this pressure to be “in love” one day out of the year, let’s practice the thought behind Valentine’s Day throughout the year.
Make time for your loved ones every day and the need to experience it all in one just might vanish. A great way to do this and show someone you care is with food. They say, “the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach”! It’s not just about the food itself, though. It’s about taking the time to create something out of love and enjoying it together. Bonding over good food and conversation is good for the soul. Research even suggests that couples who work together in the kitchen have stronger relationships and better communication skills over the long haul.
I’m personally loving the idea of cooking together this Valentine’s Day! And it can easily be done with PlateJoy!
