Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, which has me feeling all lovey dovey. And, if that wasn’t enough, yesterday Matt landed himself in the ER with some scary medical symptoms. It has left me feeling especially fond of him this week. So fond, I’d like to have him home right now and cook him a thick, juicy steak.

There is no floral comparison for a guy that gives the same punch as a bunch of herbs and a juicy slab of meat. Show your man you care by handing him a simple bouquet of herbs, along with the promise of his favorite cooked meal, next Thursday (or any day you remember how awesome he is!).
