This Saturday is February 1st. It’s hard to believe we are already one month in to the New Year. And we are fast approaching one of my favorite holidays–Valentine’s Day. I love this day because our tradition is for me to plan our day. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am the creative one in our marriage. I love to think of fresh, new ways to show my love to Tom. I also enjoy helping others do the same for their spouse.
The question to answer first is, are you willing to make this Valentine’s Day special, or would you rather not bother? I get it if this isn’t your thing. But what if it’s your spouse’s thing and they have continually deferred to your wishes in this regard. Why not really surprise them and do something unexpected?
We have revamped our Husbands Only and Wives Only romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day. I encourage you to click over and see if there isn’t something you could pull off this year.
As an incentive we are holding a contest–Romance Your Valentine contest
After Valentine’s Day send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) explaining how you Romanced your Valentine. We will choose the best story, solely at our discretion, announcing the winner on Friday, February 21st. That gives you a week to submit your entry.
Bonus points if…
- You share our contest on any social media outlet (let us know in your entry letter)
- You send a romantic photo of you both on Valentine’s Day
- You visit our Wives or Husbands Only page and mention one idea you really love
Entries will be judged on creativity, romantic element, and style of writing.
Now for the Prize:
$25 gift card to your favorite restaurant and/or coffee shop
A signed copy of our book, Cherishing Us–365 Tips for a Healthy Marriage
We can’t wait to see what you come up with this Valentine’s Day. Now you’ve got me thinking…
She puts up with a lot in me,
and I hope she doesn’t pine
for our romantic history
and old St. Valentine.
There has been so much went wrong
with life, since courting days,
and we had to take it strong
so that together, we might stay
in the life we tried to build,
in the dream (or what remains)
while I am by cancer killed
and she’s witness to the pains
that rip body and soul apart,
but cannot take her from my heart.
