What Maryann Does on Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is celebrated everywhere as a day of romance.

My husband  and I usually spend Valentine's Day at home. Normally I make a special dinner and he brings home a special bottle of wine and chocolates. I am not fussy when it comes to chocolate, but on Valentine's Day chocolate covered strawberries are something I look forward to getting as my special gift. Candles lit at the center of the table add to the ambiance as I play soft instrumental music in the background.  After dinner we relax with a glass of wine. We create a relaxing mood and take turns giving  each other massages.  There have been times when I placed rose petals from the back door that lead to the bedroom where my husband would find more rose petals. I think roses are very romantic scattered as petals whether in the bed or in the bathtub.

We give each other cards and just enjoy quality time together. Since we spend so much time with each other, everyday is a celebration of our love.
