Now, this year Valentine's Day (February 14th) falls on a Monday. Since Monday is the worst day of the week, take advantage of the full weekend leading up to Valentine's Day to take care of your sweetheart. Besides, you just may surprise them since they'll be assuming you're going out on that Monday.

The beauty of utilizing the entire weekend is that your options are wide open and the chances of disappointing your valentine are slim to none. Well, that is, unless you forget the date altogether.

There's a little something for every date here in the Abilene area. Some are as obvious as the day is long and some may take a little more creativity, but you should have an awesome Valentine's Day by celebrating in the area.
