Happy Valentine's Day!!

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!!!! Hoping your day is filled with love...or at least some chocolate :) Here's some ideas for those that want to do a little something more then the stereotypical flowers or chocolates to the ones they love...a little blurb from Terry L. Orbuch, Ph.D., author of 5 Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage from Good to Great


1. Send an email or text message out of the blue: “Here’s just one reason I love you...”

2. Put a greeting card in the mail. Mail from a spouse is always a surprise.

3. Slip a handmade coupon on his or her pillow—for a foot massage from you, performing a hated chore, washing the car, etc.

4. Make a reservation at the restaurant where you had your first date.

5. Make your spouse a CD collection of the music you first listened to and loved together.

6. Make your partner his or her favorite dinner or dessert.(anything chocolate please & thank you)

7. Read a morning love poem to your partner while he or she is still in bed.

8. Have your favorite photo of you two framed or transferred onto a coffee mug.

9. Send his or her parents a thank-you note for bringing your beloved into the world. (this one sounds a little creepy!)

10. Buy a DVD on massage and tell your spouse to schedule an appointment. (my fav..hoping hubby reads the blog today of all days, LOL!!)

What are your plans for today? We cheated & ate all our chocolates on the weekend. Hopefully we'll have a nice dinner at home tonight...hmm, maybe I'll make homemade pizza in the shape of a heart?!!!


  1. What a brilliant list!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Happy Valentine's Day!

    I'll pick up my chocolate tomorrow, when it goes on sale! Is it sad that I'm more practical than romantic? *L*
