Madly In Love With Me Day
When: February 13th
Ladies, every year on the day before you lavish the significant other in your life with all your love, step back and prepare by focusing as much attention on yourself.
Yes, you deserve every bit as much of your love as does the object of your affections.
That is the concept behind Madly In Love With Me Day, held on February 13th, the day before Valentines Day.
It was founded by Californian self-help guru Christine Arylo, author of “Madly In Love With ME, The Daring Adventure To Becoming Your Own Best Friend”.
The philosophy is that to truly be able to show love to others, a woman must first be empowered to love herself without apology so throw away those diet books for a day, treat yourself to your favorite lunch in the company of people you know love and respect you as you are today.
