Tips & Ideas

Last year on St. Patrick’s Day my guy called me at work and asked me to come home directly from work.  When I got there, I found a list of instructions wrote in beautiful calligraphy on the door.

I opened the door and was immediately wooed by the gentle sounds of an Irish lullaby on CD. Following his instructions, I followed a path of clovers into the bedroom where he had lit numerous green candles.  The room was filled with the subtle scents of Ireland.

On the bed there lie a big, fluffy, green robe as well as a cotton piece of clothing that bore the words: “Lucky”.  I thought that was so cute.  Following the instructions, I put on the items and made my way into the dining room.

My sweet heart was standing by the table, beautifully set for two.  He had taken the day off of work and prepared spiced Cornish hen, Irish stew, Irish soda bread and a delectable dessert.   I couldn’t believe that he went through so much to make this holiday romantic!  I’m not even Irish!

We spent the rest of the evening cuddling and sharing all the ways how we are “lucky” to have each other.  Of course, we fell asleep to the Irish lullaby.
