This wife has got the creativity thing down. Make sure to check out her second idea if you are engaged…
Mark had been working a lot of extra hours and I took the initiative of planning a “surprise” getaway. It would necessitate Mark taking a day off work, so I found his boss’ email address and requested Mark have that Friday off, which he graciously gave. I kept it a secret till the night before, where I joyfully told Mark he did not need to go to work the next day. It was a wonderful trip and to this day we have fun recounting all our memories.
For those who are engaged…For our first Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple, I made up a basket of 18 gifts/cards to coincide with the 18 weeks we had from Valentine’s Day to our wedding. They ranged from love notes to coupons (to be used once we were married, i.e. breakfast in bed). For one week, I put a cd in there with Nat King Cole’s “Unforgettable” song. Each Friday, from Valentine’s on Mark had a countdown to our wedding day.
