When I started to think about Valentine’s Day I wanted to show my husband that there are ways to celebrate that doesn’t cost a dime. I wanted to do this for two reasons. One is that he is accustomed to events and holidays celebrated with balloons, banners, presents, the whole nine yards. There is nothing wrong with having all those decorations and extras but I wanted to show my husband what I cherish most is the thought and creativity of it all. My second reason is we are watching how we spend our money, especially now that we have a new born!

With those two reasons in mind I brainstormed on how I could be romantic for Valentine’s without a cost. During my brainstorm event another thought crossed my mind. Why plan for just one day? Valentine’s Day is to show your affection and love but I wanted it to last longer than just the one day. I wanted to take this opportunity to possibly start something special and rekindle our relationship. Since I got pregnant our romantic life has slowed down to prepare for another baby and for us both taking on side jobs to help the family income. That’s when I created my list of 30 ways for 30 days.

30 ways for 30 days is a list of quick, easy, and simple ways to show you care and that your thinking of your partner. I did not do each action item in order. It would depend on the day and mood that we were in. Below is my 30 ways for 30 days to show your affection.
