Iwanted to wait until February before posting about Valentine's Day. I've had this sitting in my drafts for a few weeks, but didn't want to start bringing it up too soon. I love Valentine's Day, mainly because it was 13 years ago on that day that I realized I was really falling for my hubby and that we'd potentially end up together forever. As it turned out, I was right, and the memory of the first time I had that realization has given it a bit of a special place in my heart.
This year I'm thinking of doing a year of Valentine's. 12 valentines, 1 per month to be opened over the course of the year each with a planned day accompanying it. I feel fairly safe posting this, because, well, he doesn't read my blog. (Nicole, Jen... please keep it a secret) That's the benefit of blogging about homemaking and decorating. So anyway...
February: Lucky Stiff
March: An afternoon of snowpeople and hot cocoa
April: Dinner at L'Bistro with live Jazz music
May: Thinking of a Twins game, but it could get expensive (6 hrs away)
June: Go Karts at Thunder Road
July: ND State Fair
August: Medora Musical and Pitchfork Fondue
September: Rollag Threshing Bee
October: Picnic at Icelandic State Park, Snow Contingency Plan: Game Night
November: Murder Mystery evening
December: Pack a picnic basket with goodies for looking at Christmas lights
January: An afternoon of sledding and ice skating
What are you planning for Valentine's Day?
