My husband and I will celebrate our 14th Valentine’s Day together on Friday. Like lots of couples, in the early days of our relationship there’d be romantic gifts and elaborate plans. Now, with two kids and the maelstrom that comes with them, all we really want is a night out with dinner that doesn’t involve sippy cups and chicken nuggets.
Although the days of extravagant gifts are behind us, my husband still pays attention to my “subtle” hints. He’s been known to surprise me with a small, sparkly token of love when I least expect it, making Valentine’s Day out of an ordinary day and getting him way more points on the romance scale. Some of the gorgeous baubles below aren’t such small tokens, but hey, a girl can dream. In case he’s reading this, these are on my wishlist for Friday… and forever.
