Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Now is the time to start coming up with ideas and making plans otherwise we’ll find it sneaking up on us.
Some of us might spend a night on the town with our love and others might have a quiet evening at home. Maybe it’s because money is tight and there isn’t anything extra in the budget for a meal out or baby-sitter for the kids. Maybe it’s just simpler and more enjoyable to stay home.
That doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! Whatever the reason, I have the perfect thing to making your evening at home a little more special.
I have a valentine’s playlist for you (and an idea for how to turn it into a gift). Perfect background music for eating your late supper after the little kids are put to bed, to visit and play games by over dessert, or to snuggle up on the couch in front of the fire place and chat by.
To be honest, I know little about music. The radio is on when we are driving in the car and that’s about it. Don’t worry, I didn’t come up with this list. My husband did and he is a music person. Maybe a little more than just a music person. He might verge on being a music hoarder. With probably over 1500 CDs in his collection (and he’s recently gotten rid of several) and having worked in radio for years, he knows what he’s talking about.
You could actually turn this (or a playlist of your favorite love songs) into a personalized gift. While we were dating, my husband compiled a CD of love songs and had a letter to go with it saying what each song was and how it reminded him of me and our relationship. It was pretty sweet and we still have it after being married 7 1/2 years.
