Valentine’s Day is on a Wednesday night this year. With soccer practices, church groups, homework, working late, and just general parental exhaustion, going out for Valentine’s Day this year may not be an option. 

Here are some ideas that don’t require a babysitter, much money, or much planning …  

Who doesn’t love a romantic dinner with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day? With food appealing to many of our senses, it’s no surprise that our meals can have an aphrodisiac effect. 

If you ask my coworkers, they’ll tell you that there’s something romantic about going out to a special restaurant on the Designated Day of Love.  If I’m being honest, though, the biggest appeal to me is not having to do the dishes after a delicious meal. 

Tuscaloosa Flower Shoppe has once again teamed up with the Arts ‘n Autism After School Program for the Valentine’s Day fundraiser, “Hearts on Fire for Arts 'n Autism.” The Shoppe will donate all delivery fees and tips collected Feb. 12-13 by volunteers – members of Tuscaloosa’s BNI chapters.

The flower shop will also sell paper hearts for the fundraiser ranging in price from $1 to $50. Anyone who purchases a heart worth $10 or more will be eligible for an upgraded flower arrangement. All proceeds benefit the mission of Arts ‘n Autism, which will provide after school care, summer camps and arts-based therapy for children and young adults in the West Alabama area.
