Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I have to admit, I’m a sucker for this holiday. Call me an optimist or a hopeless romantic, but I just love the idea of a day dedicated to love! Over the years, whether I’ve been single or coupled up on February 14, I always strive to make the day special, and remind the wonderful people in my life just how important they are to me.
After all, a little romance goes a long way… Tonight, for instance, Fury’s dedicating its sunset sail to Valentine’s Day. Take your sweetie out on the warm, tropic waters of Key West Harbor, sip on champagne, and feed each other strawberries while the sun sinks into the ocean and the sky lights up in an amazing color show.
Or… grab your girls, put on something sexy and red, and hit the town celebrating your friendship. Sip champagne and feed each other strawberries. Why not!? Okay, only kidding about the strawberries part (sort of!). But, seriously I’ve had some of my most romantic Valentine’s celebrating with platonic friends. And you never know what the night may hold. There could always be a handsome stranger sitting across the bar… (I’ve always had an active imagination!)
And gentleman, why not amp up the romance? If there’s a special lady in your life—your wife, your girlfriend, your mom, your sister, your best friend—why not surprise her with a little special something? It’s not hard! A box of chocolates, a love poem, an old school homemade Valentine, a bottle of champagne… And, as my man Stephen Reddy says, flowers go a long way. I second that! Any girl would love a bouquet of red roses or just a single carnation. It truly is the thought that counts!
I put a little something together for all of my Valentines’ this year. We will see what the day holds… Lots of love and romance to the fabulous Fury fans! See you on the Key West sunset sail tonight!
XO, Fury Girl
