If you know me then you know my love for the color pink! I don’t wear a lot of pink, but a lot of my accessories and things around my house are pink or have pink accents. With Valentine’s Day Coming up I have seen ALL THE THINGS I want and can rationalize that I need. However, Mr. Godbott just put us on a No Spend (the nerve of him)!
Valentine’s Day is recognized as a day for lovers to shower their hearts delight with gifts and words of endearment. It is a day set aside for romance. Females especially hold this day dear and cherish the tokens of love showered upon them. The question is what is a husband, lover or suitor to do when the heart is willing but the pockets are not deep? Not to fear, romance need not empty to coffers.
A lovely bouquet of wildflowers, trimmed and tied with a ribbon can be more beautiful than two dozen roses prepared by a stranger. The effect is even more pronounced when the bouquet is placed on the seat of your special person’s car. Or if the funds are available for a dozen roses, do not present them all at once. Have them placed so your intended finds them one by one throughout the day.
Sitting in front of the fire with a glass of wine expressing to each other what you feel. No fireplace, no problem…you can find a mock fire on YouTube and it makes the sounds of wood cracking as well! Holding hands, and simply enjoying each others company is worth more than gold and often times better than any extravagant night.
