My husband and I decided years ago that we would stay home with our kids on Valentine’s Day instead of going out as a couple. We have a tradition of doing cheese and chocolate fondue for dinner with our kids. It is fun and the kids feel loved and special knowing that we want to be with them on “love day”. My husband and I also decided years ago that we would switch off buying gifts/planning a Valentine’s date. We go on a date for Valentine’s Day, but we do it on a different night. One year I will buy a gift and he will plan the date. The next year we switch.
This year it was my turn to plan the date and his to buy the gift. He got me a Kindle Fire HD and a box of See’s Chocolates. Woo hoo! I am so excited about my Kindle and the See’s have special meaning to us (and good chocolates are just yummy!). For our date we will be going to a steakhouse and seeing a romantic movie. Nothing too exciting but we are definitely looking forward to it. But I did want to do something special for him and something to commemorate our love for each other on Valentine’s Day.
So, after dinner last night we put the kids upstairs watching a movie with instructions to go to bed after it was over. And I planned a “Spa Night” for my lover. It was soooo fun to plan it and set it all up. I just knew he would LOVE it. And he totally did. And even though it was a lot of work for me I really loved doing it for him. I want to share what I did and how I did it.
I didn’t take pictures, but I did take these shots of the bathtub area the next morning.
