Cupid's arrows have struck our home and the things-to-make list is dwindling down. With the love in the air, comes the grumbling of those who have other feelings about the day. And although both my husband and I agree that it's important to show how much that other person means to you on a regular basis throughout the year, Valentine's Day is a day to place a greater emphasis on that person and the love you share.
To us this means doing something we both enjoy. It doesn't always have to be comprised of the typical roses, candy and dinner [although I have nothing against any of these things]. Looking back, we've had some great dates and not just on Valentine's Day. If you're looking for some ideas, here you are dear readers:
:: Side-by-side snow angels [be sure to capture a picture- it could be a great future gift]
:: Making homemade hot chocolate
:: Setup a table for two in your house and pretend you're out for a romantic dinner
:: Cook a new fancy dish
:: Go for a long drive and 'get lost'
:: Couple pedicures
:: Attend a wine or chocolate tasting
:: Bake cookies
:: A movie night
:: Have your fortune told
:: Take your iPod and have a concert night at home. Sing and dance your heart out.
:: Make something together
:: Have a picnic on the living room rug
Whatever it is you're doing, I hope it's extra special and filled with love.
