Valentine’s Day will sneak up on you.

Think about how fast the holidays flew by and we are already in the middle of January.  Just a little over one month from the romantic holiday.

I will be the first one to admit this but when it comes to my personal life, I am a horrible planner.

I’m a horrible planner for vacations to even, yes, Valentine’s Day and I know this is not an excuse or at least a good excuse.

Between work and family, yeah life is busy.

I know I’m not the only one.

Then you have the debate of whether or not to get a sitter and go out.

Do you just lay low and do something romantic at home?  You know, a movie with a pint of ice cream.

Oh, and if you’re a brand-new couple, and started dating someone around the holidays, do you even go out for Valentine’s Day?  Not a popular opinion but I’ll say no to that one.  It’s awkward to celebrate a romantic holiday less than 2 months into dating.  Right?

To my friends who are single and reading this, you are not forgotten at all.  We all know how much you dislike Valentine’s Day.  Hey, you even renamed it “singles awareness” day.  OK, they absolutely hate Valentine’s Day.

I feel like the easiest thing to do is go out to dinner.  It’s a nice time away from the kids, it’s a great time to get out of the house.  It’s a win all around.

But where?

This top 10 list has a wide range of delicious choices for that perfect date night.

No surprise it also has some of the best Italian restaurants in the area on it.
