Celebrating Valentine’s Day with excitement year after year can get tricky. Yes my husband is awesome and I love him, but after so many Valentine’s they all start to look the same. We go to the same restaurant. I wear the same earrings. He gets me the same chocolates.
Do yourselves a favor and throw out everything you think about how Valentine’s Day should be. Good… now think of something you WANT to do.
Skip the usual tradition and go hiking or order pizza and don’t use plates. Do whatever it is that you enjoy as couple. I personally want to surprise my husband with some boudoir pictures. I haven’t put on lingerie in far too long, and the look on his face is going to be priceless. The routine of marriage is comforting, but Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to throw in something unexpected. Turn off your phones, forget that your valentine snores and leaves dirty socks on the floor, and rediscover why it is you fell in love in the first place. Oh yeah, and don’t go too crazy with mixing things up. I still want my box of chocolates!
