Spicing up your Valentine’s Day

    Flowers? Check. Store-bought cards dotted with hearts? Check. Delicious chocolatey treats? Check.

    Dull, dull, and more dull? Check, check and more check.

    Everyone knows the drill on Valentine’s Day and just what flowers to buy and what aisles in the drugstores to hit in advance of the big event. Personal growth coach Teressa Moore Griffin says that’s the problem — following “established protocol” and getting into a rut can drain the big day of all its meaning.

    Griffin offers some advice on how to break the monotony in an audio feature on CBSPhilly. On the list? DIY cards, foot massages and … NASCAR? Definitely not your average red-hearts-and-flowers event.
