When I was much younger Valentine’s Day was all about cards, chocolate candy, and roses (not that any of this is out of the picture for me today *grins*), but times change after so many years of marriage. So, the big question is…what’s on my romantic wish list for Valentine’s Day?
We all have one, right? Or at least we do inside our head…more like a hopeful list of possibilities, since it might not come to fruition anytime soon.
If you’re love relationship is in the beginnings of something bigger or just established or way, way established…you’ve got ideas about what’s romantic, what you’d like to happen on Valentine’s Day for you.
I’m going to start a little list…and please share something of your own…we can get something established here for men and women: ) Call it a guideline *grins*
Being of the female gender, I’ll begin this list with:
- Waking up on Valentine’s Day to a warm embrace and kiss
- Valentine’s Day card OR romantic letter strategically placed for me to find
- Invite to breakfast, lunch or dinner…OR bring something home
- Plans to see a Romantic Comedy movie…preferably at home ;)
- Just being introduced to See’s Candies by an author friend…well, a 1 lb. box would be lovely http://www.sees.com/ *big toothy smile*
Okay – now your turn – please leave something in the comments – add to this wish list – something of your own :)
