My husband and I recently celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. I’ve been traveling so much lately that, frankly, I did not want a night out away from my children. Instead, the boys helped me string up strands of twinkle lights, move a small table in front of the fireplace and arrange some sprigs of rosemary in a vase. I set a sweet and simple table. My husband grilled and the boys served themselves in another room, only surfacing in our “bistro” to ask if we needed more water. My husband and I were able to re-connect, share a bit of alone time, take stock of our blessings, transport ourselves to another location… all in the sanctuary of our home with our loved ones nearby.
I find it especially meaningful that the acronym for keep it simple, sweetheart is KISS. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Make your home the most romantic hotspot in town.
