Readers may or may not remember that Angel surprised me with a trip to Great Wolf Lodge for our anniversary in December. You know what that means? That means I'm in charge of planning Valentine's Day. In our family, we decided to take turns planning special events for each other.
Of course, in planning a special day for your spouse, you have to take into consideration what THEY would consider a special day, not only what you would like. Because, you see, my ideal Valentine's Day plan would probably involve some sort of kidnapping, scavenger hunt, international plane tickets, surprise vacation, diamonds, etc. That's me. Angel's ideal romantic day, on the other hand, would probably involve steak and me and that's it. So, while I haven't completely finished planning Valentine's Day yet, I will try to tone myself down and keep Angel's slightly more relaxed personality in mind. Try being the operative word. We'll see how things go.
To that end, I have a suggestion for a romantic gift for the easy-going guys in your lives. Kristin at Vignettes has created a gift set for your man that includes a chocolate bar, BBQ rub, massage oil, tea bags, a set to create a little dry-erase love note board, AND 5 of the cutest little envelopes with cards to write love notes on!
My main love language is words of encouragement, and we all know that writing is my thing, so notes and letters are a big part of my relationship with Angel. Therefore, I'm most excited about the adorable little envelopes to put my notes in. If you've ever visited Kristin's shop, you'll know that she's very talented at working with paper, and it really shows in this kit.
However, while I'm in love with the love-note supplies, chocolate and BBQ chicken is most definitely Angel's type of thing, so all in all, I believe that this kit will work great as part of our Valentine's festivities! Thanks so much, Kristin! And for everyone else, you can buy your own kit here for $25, including shipping.
Fun Fact: My very first Valentine's Day that I had a 'special guy'--I was already married. Weird. It happened that way because we didn't start courting until March, and because we got married in December, by the time my first 'romantic' Valentine's Day came around, I had a couple months of marriage experience already.
Fun Fact Again: One time I gave my sister a secret admirer letter on Valentine's Day, and I'm still not sorry. And I think she's still slightly bitter about it. Just slightly.
