Can we talk about romance? Not just the stuff in novels, but real life romance within marriage?
My husband and I have been married for almost 13 years and have four kids, ages 11 and under. Each of us has a ton of responsibilities between running our businesses, his work schedule, and my homeschooling the children. We rarely… maybe once every other month… have time to go out on a date and romance? What is romance? Why does romance have to die?
So, here I am with a few days before Valentine’s Day and I am realizing that I want something special to happen. I don’t have time to get anything in from Amazon and I don’t want to spend a ton of money, but I want to feel connected to my husband in a deep and meaningful way. I want to give him something that will communicate my love for him while re-kindling the romance.
Wow. Seems quite complicated as I’m looking for Valentine’s Day gift ideas… but I have a plan.
Step One – The night before Valentine’s Day, I am going to shave my legs and paint my toenails. Vain, yes, but nothing puts a pause on romance faster that feeling like a hairy, busy mommy. I need to feel pretty but I have to plan ahead.
Step Two – Entertain the kids with lots of active family play outside, have a fun dinner, give them warm baths in lavender essential oil… and then put them to bed early.
Step Three – While my husband is in the shower (which he always does after the kids are in bed), I am setting up the candles and computer.
