To all the hopeless romantics out there, this is your time to shine! August is National Romance Awareness Month, giving each of us in love with love, the chance to celebrate this glorious feeling by simply being our magnificent, in-love selves! Want fun ways to stay romantic this month? We've got a few ideas 😉
THROW A ROM-COM PARTY!
This is the time to indulge! Host a popcorn party to watch all of your favorite romantic comedies with your besties! Get creative with a popcorn bar and give the girls and guys different spices to make their own popcorn flavors.
Not a fan of popcorn? Have a cookie baking party!
Bring out the measuring cups and start baking! This is a wonderful opportunity to not only watch the best rom-coms but to catch up with friends and eat some sweets too! Get a few extra baking sheets, spatulas, parchment paper, whisks, cookie cutters and create delicious sweet masterpieces.
It's almost certain that you'll have a lot of cookies left over. Instead of tossing them in the fridge or trash, put them in little bags and hand them out to coworkers and, why not, strangers on the street! Spread love 🙂

Julianne (Julia Roberts), realizes that she loves Michael (Dermot Mulroney) the moment he announces his wedding to the gorgeous Kimberly (Cameron Diaz). Julianne is overtaken by the news and vows to stop the wedding. She is ironically appointed maid of honor, and well, things get a little messy.
