Tips & Ideas

My husband and I had been married for only 5 months on our first Valentine’s together. We really didn’t have much money to spend on presents, and my husband is not creative at all, so I knew I would have to come up with something if I want a romantic Valentine’s.

So the week before the 14th we decided that we were not going to buy presents, instead we would make the day special by doing something together.

Because we are both working, and too tired in the evening to cook, we bought our dinners from a lady, so dinner was all ready. When we got home from work, we dressed… and I mean dressed. I wore my most beautiful black evening dress, and he wore a black suit and white shirt (he looked so sexy)… While I was doing my hair and my make-up (as if we were going to a fancy place), he quickly set the table, lit the candles, and put on some soft music.

We ended up dancing and sitting on the couch, telling each other how much we love the other one, and in the end it was the most romantic evening of my life.
