Love is in the air and hearts across the land are overflowing with warm emotions. Establishments are hyping their presidential suites and couple specials, all going for a princely sum. Thousands of shillings are spent on every February the 14 on fleeting moments and withering flowers.
On this one day, a mountain of pressure falls upon lovers to dress up, have the right words and to craft the right moments. Companies and establishments are very willing to assist you in this – at a price. Yet, we all know you can’t put a price on love.
Love lives in the warmth of a smile, silly shared jokes and the chasm of separation when you’re not together. Love, that fuzziest of fuzzy feelings already comes at a price. It’s always hard and full of doubts. Sleep is lost, tears shed and while the good moments are magical, the bad times make you question if any of it is worth it.
It need not be a financial burden too. In our main feature this weekend, we speak up for those who put passion and creativity over price; ways you can put love back at the centre, without the financial pressure. Have a lovely one!
