Ah, February. It's the middle of winter without much to look forward to other than 6 more weeks of winter. Well, there is Valentine's Day. A controversial celebration of romantic love. There are those that despise. They see it as nothing more than a made up holiday to sell cards, flowers and chocolates. There are those of us, however, that love the excuse to do a little extra with their love. Of course it's important to show your affection year round, but it's not always realistic to go out and do something extra special like get a couple's massage or enjoy a nice dinner at your favorite restaurant.
With all the extra attention on love and romance this time of year, it's a good time to look past the Hallmark cards and teddy bears and have a thoughtful discussion on healthy relationships. This is the first in a month long series about just that. We will be examining signs of abusive relationships, safe sex practices, healthy ways to handle conflict and more.
Check back throughout the month to see the latest post!
