Roses are red, violets are blue. We love our weddings and our readers do too! Okay, okay, love birds, so I'm not a poet. But I do want to wish you sweethearts a lovely, lovely Valentine's Day. It's a commercially contrived holiday full of expectations and overpriced trinkets, but ONLY if you make it that way. Here are ten things from AskMen.com that you can do on this day that aren't corny, cliched, or contrite:
1 - Reinact your first date.
2 - Enjoy the last weeks of winter (yay) with some outdoor activities - sledding, skiing, or skating anyone?
3 - Get a couple's massage.
4 - Leave rose petals on trails around the house.
5 - Get a hotel room - why not do some homework on potential honeymoon suites?
6 - Unplug your electronics and stay home!
7 - Go somewhere brandnew for a walk, a dinner, or just to hang out.
8 - Get away - drive somewhere or last minute fly somewhere warmer than ici. :)
9 - Get dressed up and go out to see and be seen by other love birds.
10 - Work together on a piece of the wedding - vows, making decors, whatever...just make sure it's not a stressful planning activity!
