I can’t believe it is already Valentine’s week! Where on earth is this year going??? If you are just now realizing that you only have a few days left to plan a surprise for your Valentine it’s OK! I have come up with a few ideas that don’t involve prix fixe menus and over priced wine.
A Romantic Brunch – Newsflash! February 14th is a Sunday this year aka Brunch Day. So instead of fighting for a table at the hottest restaurant in town why not enjoy a leisurely morning with your sweetie followed by Eggs Beni, Mimosas, and French Press. Flowers & Chocolates optional.
Wine & Cheese Picnic – If you live anywhere currently experiencing a heat wave pack a basket with a cozy blanket, some of your favorite cheese & crackers plus a bottle of wine and head for a secluded spot to enjoy with your S.O.
Black & White Movies at Home – Am I the only one who feel instantly romantic just watching an old B&W film? Amazon Prime has a ton of great options for at home viewing (I personally adore An Affair To Remember) and the best part is you can snuggle on the couch with your love in your cutest PJs. Don’t forget a bottle of bubbles and a dessert for 2.
Wine Tasting – Again, this one is great if you are lucky enough to live near a winery. Throw on your Sunday best and set out for an afternoon of tasting at your favorite spot (if you are an avid follower you know we adore Wiens in Temecula). Chris and I really love to buy a bottle of a wine we love and sit outside after we taste with a little snack, a bottle of wine, and the gorgeous views.
Stay In – This year Chris and I decided to pass on dining out with every other couple in Palm Springs. Instead we will be making dinner at home and then heading out for dessert and some bubbles to celebrate.
I hope you all have a fun and magical Valentine’s Day!
