The Green Life: Green is the Color of Love

Green is the Color of Love

Roses Are Red... Although I'm happily paired off, I don't really like to make much of a fuss over Valentine's Day. It just seems kind of weird to make your big expressions of love at the same exact time as millions of other couples. But there's no denying the appeal of being doted on any day of the year, and making your gifts green is a nice way to show you’ve put a little extra thought into things.

Forget the overpriced, pesticide-laden—and truth be told, kind of generic—bunch of long-stemmed roses and pick up some fresh wildflowers in your loved one's favorite colors at your local farmers' market. (If you must go traditional, at least make 'em organic.) Fair-trade, shade-grown chocolate is nice, but a homemade treat can be even sweeter. If all the best restaurants are booked, whip up a candle-lit dinner at home. Can't cook? Keep it simple with a romantic picnic, a formula that's endured for hundreds of years: a jug of (organic) wine, a loaf of bread--and thou.
