They say heaven is where the chefs are Italian, the mechanics are German, the police are British, and the lovers are...French. If that’s true,
it’s just another reason why I am lucky to have landed in such a place as Paris. I’m particularly excited for Valentine’s Day this year as I’ve got a special someone to share it with — yes,
I finally fell head over heels in love for a Frenchman of my own!
That being said, I believe Valentine’s Day is for everyone…not just the lovers! It’s a day to
celebrate love of all kinds, between family, friends, lovers, and even on your own with that ever
important self-love! No matter who you decide to share the day with, I thought I would share a few
last minute ideas to spread the love and embrace the amour in the air!
