It won’t be long and Cupid will be gracing us with his presence.
Prior to my chronic illness (and missing so much work), my husband and I would head off to a bed and breakfast in the mountains for a refreshing getaway. Now that we’ve had to reign in our spending, a refreshing mountain getaway just isn’t in the cards for us right now.
And let’s face it since we are all just coming off the Christmas season, spending a lot of money may not be an option for you either.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t do something nice for Valentine’s Day. In fact, in the years since we’ve really had to cut back on our spending, I’ve found that there really are some great, meaningful ways to enjoy every holiday, even on a budget.
