There’re a few times each year that we really ought to remember our significant other. Among those times, are Valentine’s Day.
Just because you and yours are likely to be grandparents now, it doesn’t mean that all the fun needs to grow old. In fact, seniors and near seniors probably have more freedom now than you ever did when all the kids still lived at home.
But even still, finding a worthwhile date idea that is new and exciting can be stressful.
So today, I felt like sharing a few ideas around Utah and Salt Lake County, that might make 2020’s Valentine’s Day all the more memorable.
