Valentine's Day…make it special!

My perfect valentine’s day does not involve a reservation at the hottest restaurant, or even a night out on the town. My husband and I usually spend valentines day at home. It doesn’t hurt that he is an amazing cook, so he usually cooks up something fabulous. But I get in on the cooking action too. One year, we each prepared 2 courses and revealed them with menus and all that night. Served with a bottle of wine we had picked up on a trip to Napa, it was pure perfection. Think about what you would truly enjoy as a couple, and make it happen. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but make it special!

I would love to hear what you guys are planning, or what you have done in the past! It’s always fun to hear. Another perfect idea I think…Breakfast in bed!
