I wanted to let you know that I think Valentine’s Day can be so overrated. I don’t really stress about it as much as you do because I know what gift you really want (wink, wink). It can be a daunting task trying to pick out that perfect gift for me, but I’m here to help you. First, I’m not fighting the crowds with a fancy prefixed dinner menu. Second, I love chocolates, but not in a box. Third, I’m allergic to flowers, so that’s out. So here’s the scoop on a few gift ideas and it’s not what you may think.
-In the morning, I would truly enjoy lounging on the sofa watching the Today Show or Good Morning America. I don’t really care which one. That would lead into scanning the DVR for This Is Us or The Bachelor while drinking my once heated cup of coffee while snuggling in my comfy robe.
-For the afternoon, I would enjoy a day at the Eau Spa in Palm Beach dangling my pedicured feet into the water from one of their swinging chairs while sipping champagne. Please!
-Then a shopping spree down Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach like in Pretty Woman. Just give me the credit card and I can do it myself.
-This, of course, would include a day without my kids. I love them with all of my heart, but I would love to focus on a magazine, a show, my lunch without being interrupted.
-Sex when I feel like it, but that’s never feasible.
-A night without bedtime routine. Enough said!
-I just REALLY WANT 8 hours of sleep in one day. I have sleepwalking, pillow stealing, I miss you mommy night crawlers and I wouldn’t change it for anything. But a night without sleep interruptions is a true dream, instead of a nightmare.
You can stop eye-rolling me now and know that you are my dearest and I love you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
