A cooler week reminds me of my favourites: cosy sweaters, blankets, sitting with the garden, and the little romantic things we love. Here are three ideas to try:
Lasting Impression: When we were first dating, I gave my husband a little card with a unique pink lipstick kiss on it as a valentine. He has kept the card in his wallet ever since…it’s been about a decade. (My Kiss stationery is based on that valentine.)
Kind Gestures: Last night, I looked out of the window and saw my husband with a handful of weeds on his way to the compost area of the garden. Clearing a pathway, doing laundry or dishes, and little helpful things are very sweet gestures that show you care. Giving your beloved the gift of some down time is wonderful!
Little Offerings: Hugs, massages, gentle touches, a delicious lunch, a cup of favourite tea, and loving words are simple, yet impactful, ways to say ‘I adore you.’ We also write out love notes on the bottom of market shopping lists, on corners of the To Do chalkboard, and on my Ethereal Romance Notecards. It is lovely to find an ‘I love you’ at the breakfast table.
Romantic, cosy choices for our home are fun to design. This is a week of new floors and wall painting for two living spaces and the last hook ups for the new kitchen. It will be wallpaper time soon!
