I so enjoyed hearing about all of your St. Valentine’s Day plans and thought I’d share mine as well. As you know, Mr. Beguiles and I are quite fond of the Stay-At-Home-Date-Night. While it can be so romantic to go out on the town, I am just as happy staying in. It’s a trade off, but given how busy we’ve been lately, a quiet night at home seems just perfect. Don’t you worry! We’ll be sure to set the mood with a bit of Ella Fitzgerald,possibly some Frank Sinatra,and plenty of candles!
And so, without further ado, here is what I’ve got up my sleeve for my handsome Valentine…
Steak, potatoes and a salad. My man is nothing if not All American.
Vanilla ice cream topped with homemade raspberry sauce and whipped cream. Absolutely delicious!
We’re thinking of selecting an oldie but goodie but a final decision has yet to be made. Any suggestions?
and a Valentine!
I bought a beautiful (but manly, of course!) white coffee cup, filled it with my darling’s favorite sweet treats and topped it with a spiritual bouquet of sorts. What could be a more loving gift than the gift of prayer, after all? Plus, it’s perfect for those of us living frugally. I first heard of Spiritual Bouquets from the lovely Regina Doman. They are often gifted to those who are grieving but I think it’s an excellent gift for any occasion. I found the perfect way to package and deliver my spiritual bouquet to Mr. Beguiles over here at Inchmark. Aren’t these awesome? They will fit perfectly into the mug I selected for my honey right alongside the candy. Instead of filling the matchboxes with candy I am going to line the insides with nice paper and possibly any small images I find that remind me of the two of us. Then I will write down the prayers I plan to say for my dear husband, roll them up scroll-style and tuck them inside. I do hope he will like it!
I hope you all have a most LOVE-ly Valentine’s Day! Bisous!
