Valentine’s Day Date Night

Did you know that this year Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday? That means there really isn’t an excuse for you not to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Valentine’s Day (unless of course you or your valentine is out of town).

I know for my husband and I, Valentine’s Day easily gets pushed to the back burner. When we first started dating and even when we were first married, Valentine’s Day was a big deal, but now that we have been married for a while and have a couple of kiddos, we haven’t made it as important as it once was. While I know that we aren’t the only couple like this, I also know that celebrating Valentine’s Day is something that all couples should make an effort to do.

Traditional Date Night – Making reservations at a fancy restaurant followed by plans to go see a movie or possibly even a night of dancing can be a nice Valentine’s Day date for couples. This is especially true for the couples who have been together a long time or those who enjoy the simpler things in life as this date doesn’t require a lot of special planning and can even be put together at the last minute Ice Skating – The cool thing about Valentine’s Day is that it happens in February. Christmas is over yet the cold weather still remains, leaving plenty of fun seasonal things to do. One of my favorite Valentine’s Day dates was when my husband and I went out for a nice dinner and then spent the evening at the ice skating rink. Neither one of us was very good, which is probably why it was so much…
