|Happy Valentine's Day!|
I asked my husband for ideas on how to make a memorable Valentine's Day date for two that didn't require a lot of money, and was something he would enjoy doing. Here were some of the things the two of brainstormed. Which of these would appeal to you and your Valentine?
Pack a fun, light dinner in a picnic basket and head to the airport. There is small airport not far from our house, and you can park outside the fence and watch planes take off and land. Have the picnic while you try to come with ideas about where the various planes might be headed. For example, a large plane has a greater distance, so it might be bound for a more exotic location than a small, light aircraft. Talk about where you think it's going and what you would do if you were going there.
Look through some travel magazines and pick a location ahead of time where you wish you could go. If it's cold outside, have an indoor picnic (my husband surprised me with the picnic theme, believe me). Open the curtains to let in sunlight. Lay a blanket on the floor and sit down together. Pretend you are having a picnic in the location you chose, and role-play what you see. "Oh look! There's a dolphin pod out there past the waves!" Or, if you can go outside, have your picnic in a park and pretend you're in a different place, like New York City's Central Park.
Bottom line, whatever you do, take the time to share something tasty, cuddle, and dream. Dreaming is what brings a couple together. Without a vision, without a dream, there is no future.
At the end of your "date" -- commit to your relationship and to each other, and make plans for the real thing later. Then set about planning your next imaginary date to another memorable location only the two of you can share.
