I love Valentine’s day! It gives me permission to take time to just do something fun with my sweet hubby! Sometimes we have at home dates because they are relaxing (and inexpensive). We get a babysitter for the kids, and rent a movie. Other fun things I like to do on Valentines are:
- Get him a card. I like to put into words all that I love and appreciate about him. (I also like receiving cards)!
- Go to Target with him. The closest Target takes us about 30 minutes to get to. So we can talk about anything we want without any interruptions. This is priceless. 🙂
- Think about when I first fell in love with him. Those memories never get old. I highly recommend taking time to think about the good times. If you do this before your date, you will be even more excited to go!
- Get dressed in something that makes me feel pretty.
Sometimes we do something with our girls for Valentines. Like have a Valentine’s party. We cook something that tastes good, but that doesn’t take too much work. Then we decorate and have a candlelight dinner ready when dad comes home. We usually have chocolate for dessert. We try to keep things simple. I think that is why I like Valentines so much because it can be really relaxing for mom.
One other tip-Try asking your spouse what they would like to do. Then listen attentively. You might be surprised at the answer! And just asking shows that you are interested in what is important to your spouse.
