Focus on each other instead of the holiday

Amarillo has three movie theaters, one indoor mall and about 433 restaurants. Valentine’s Day is only days away, and romance is in the air.

You ask yourself, “What am I going to do?”

The possibilities are endless.Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 6.09.16 PM

“When my husband and I went to AC, it felt like we didn’t have time to let loose and do something romantic,” alumni Ashley Johnson said. “We either gave each other cards, or went to dinner. I guess we were too caught up in schoolwork to have any fun.”

Amarillo may not seem as fun as cities such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles or New York, but using some imagination wouldn’t hurt.

Be unique and have fun. Doing so could go against the traditional dinner and a movie or chocolates and flowers.

Take your significant other to a coffee shop or a bakery. Or instead of going out, stay in.

Make dinner together, do a cute scavenger hunt, paint some pictures, build a fort, make pottery, write a song. The choices are endless.

Be unpredictable; do something that he or she wouldn’t expect coming from you. If you’re not a hopeless romantic, go out

side of town to watch the sunset. Have a picnic with all their favorite things.

Take a long walk and just talk. Who knows, maybe you’ll find out things you never would have known about each other.

While all these things are great, being traditional isn’t all that bad, either. Put a bit of you into the tradition.

For dinner and a movie, prepare your own dinner and make your living room into a theater.

If it were up to me, I would go to the outside of town, watch the sunset, bring an old school radio and dance to Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday under the stars.

Everyone is unique in their own way. Valentine’s Day not only could be a day for spoiling your significant other with sweets, but you both could experience new things. The main focus on this holiday is just enjoying each other’s company.
