February has become a season of love or as I fondly call it, the love month.
We are not too big on celebrating Valentine’s since we got together apart from the usual quirky bonding dates we’ve done in the past (like here, here and here). It’s going to be different this year though, as we are celebrating as a newly wedded couple, and I wanted to give in to all the mushy and overly sweet acts of love as I can.
If you are like me who is planning an activity with your special someone, here’s a few ideas that I’ve been toying with:
- Plan a Valentine-themed picnic. Dine under the stars at your favorite park. Pack a meal for two. Heart-shaped donuts. Cupid’s arrow cookies. Throw in some blanket, a book of poetry and your mushy spirit and indulge in an evening of saccharine poems as you read verses to each other.
- Eat your heart out. Any occasion calls for a feast, Valentine’s is one of those. They say the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and this is quite true for women, too. You may choose to stay at home and cook a special dinner or if you’re feeling indulgent, make reservations at a magnificent hotel or restaurant that are offering intimate romantic dinner experience.
- Spend a night of mystique and romance. Turn your bedroom into a romantic oasis. Create a magical cocoon around your bed with a fairy light canopy using sheer fabrics and glittering holiday lights! Whether you choose to celebrate love in luxury or in simplicity, the most important is to show your beloved how much you truly care.
Have a happy and memorable Valentine’s everyone!!!
