    Making dinner has alway seemed like one of the most romantic things to me, and I love doing that when I’m in a relationship. There’s something about being in your own space, making food, drinking wine and listening to music that is just perfect. Love all of these ideas!

    We both are dying to go to Paris, so last year I prepared a French dinner, with candles and a 3D paper Eiffel Tower. There was music playing in the background and we watched Midnight in Paris. It was the best Valentine’s Day ever. :)

    I love these ideas! I’m with you – I hate going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day, so suggested alternatives are always a wonderful thing! I think my favorite Valentine’s Day ever is when my now-husband and I ordered Chinese food to eat as a picnic on the floor of my dorm room…but then he accidentally locked us out and the food IN my room, causing us to wait for 30 minutes while we found someone to unlock the door! Let’s hope we’re a little bit more with it this year :)

    Hikes are one of my favorite dates! It can get a little annoying (even having a bf) all the pressure that is put on Valentine’s Day! It should just be fun, silly, and whatever your idea of romantic is! And of course- cupcakes should always be included!

    The overall look is important but not as important as safety.
    s beauty through landscaping refreshes the senses and the spirit.
    Whether you want to revamp your front yard so passers-by stop and notice, or emphasize the back yard for hosting parties and entertaining guests, yard landscaping is
    a low-cost exercise homeowners can participate in slowly but surely,
    during their spare time in the spring.
