Around the Home Thursday

Looking for an inexpensive way to celebrate Valentines Day?  How better to show your spouse that you can than to take the time to plan a romantic evening at home?  Make your relationship a priority today and every day and your family will be the better for it.  
Can't find a sitter on short notice?  Plan a family evening together and get a sitter for Saturday. Either way, make some time this week for your spouse and re-ignite some romance.

Here are some ideas to help you get started:

*do you and your significant other have a special meal?  Something you made when you first got together?  A special dish that he/she enjoys?

*create some ambiance with candles, flowers, soft music.  Create a playlist of songs from your dating, your wedding, or marriage that mean something to you as a couple.

*use your best linens, silver, and china.  Treat each other like a special occasion.

*look in each others' eyes and tell them specifically why you fell in love with them and why you continue to love them.

*invest in some body paints

*remember the food essentials: oysters, strawberries, champagne, and of course, chocolate
