Ahh, Valentine's Day - the romance writer's most favourite day of the year...and for those who love reading romance, this is your day too!
What better way to celebrate it than indulging in a romantic gesture or two for the one you love (or secretly admire).
So, imagine this - you're organising a special Valentine's Day with your Dearest Heart (real or fantasy), complete with venue, meals, activities and things to do - what sorts of plans would you arrange?
For the purposes of this post I'm sure Deborah-Lee won't mind lending me Hugh Jackman as my Valentine's Day DH. :-)
|One Valentine fantasy coming up!|
|A little log cabin in the woods...just for the two of you...|
|Late night canoodling...|
We could sit in front of it, on a nice soft lounge, or better yet, a nice thick rug on the floor and snuggle, perhaps with our beverages of choice, soft music playing in the background...
And a relaxing soak in a tub for two would also be divine!
|Claw-foots and romance...Goldilocks factor - just right!|
|Your private Eden...|
Perhaps not too far from the cabin would be this beautiful spot - privacy guaranteed, just in case we chose to get right back to nature and do some skinny-dipping!
Three courses, complete with scented candles. Definitely something chocolate for dessert.
Or maybe an after dinner activity involving chocolate...
|Finding a lost love...|
I like the idea of getting lost in a garden hedge maze - it'd make finding each other lots of fun and those are privacy hedges, so we could take advantage of each other...umm, I mean of them!
After fun in the maze, and building up our appetites, what could beat a gourmet picnic out in the countryside. A quiet field in the sunshine, near a tree, a good meal, perhaps a snooze after lunch...
|Share a picnic...|
And to round off the Valentine's celebration a special little something for Hugh. What?
|A special gift for a special love...|
Well, that's my secret... ;-)
|Final gratuitous shot of Hugh Jackman...sigh...|
If you could, would you go all out and paint the town red, would you choose something intimate and quiet, or maybe something beautifully simple?
