The Cost of Valentine's Day

Love don't cost a thing?

Valentine's Day can be a very special day for couples. But it can also be a very pricey day, especially young couples who don't have a whole lot of cash. Flowers, cards, candy, and a night out can add up real quick. 

I've been with the same guy for four years now, and the best Valentine's Day we had was a night spent in. We made a fancy dinner together and topped it off by making chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.

That was last year; and two years before that we didn't plan ahead at all. We couldn't get a table at our favorite restaurant in Bangor. And there was about an hour wait for every restaurant in the area.

To tell you the truth, I'd rather spend the night in, trying my hand at a new recipe than waiting around in a crowded restaurant with hundreds of other love birds.
