It’s the Month of Love! Is everyone excited? Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you certainly don’t need to be partnered up to celebrate. Give yourself some love, go out with a friend and celebrate your friendship. Buy your furbaby a special treat and watch a movie snuggled up. Love is love, baby! It doesn’t need to be romantic to count.

It’s so easy to fall into a very contented, eventless life that doesn’t see much romance, like at all.
What better excuse than a day that is solely reserved for love? Nothing says love like a conservatively priced meal and movie gift cards!

Or maybe they start practicing the occult and murdering witches!
In the spirit of the Month of Love, I’ll be writing up the stories of Killer Couples for the next couple of weeks.
First up, Michael and Suzan Carson, The San Francisco Witch Killers.
