How to Make the Most of National Romance Month

Romance Awareness Day falls on August 14th, six months after Valentine’s Day. This is because creator Eileen Buchheim created the holiday in the spirit of celebrating Romance throughout the year. In fact, the entirety of August has been designated ”Romance Awareness Month.” It’s important to remember that romance doesn’t always stem from grand gestures and complicated surprises but can also be found in the little romance you bring into your everyday life. In that spirit, Shirley’s Flower Studio is honoring the little things and encouraging you to say I love you through romantic gestures like going dancing and enjoying flowers.

Ways to Celebrate Romance Month and Speak Your Partner’s Love Language

If you want to have a special Romance month with your significant other, speak their love language, from gifts and dates to little acts of affection. Dr. Gary Chapman offers insight into how to understand the five “love languages” better. The love languages are defined as acts of service, spending quality time, using physical touch, receiving gifts, and saying words of affirmation. Use these ideas to speak your partner’s love language for a special romance month.
