Dear Cupid ...

Well, Cupid, you've done it again. This year makes 26 in a row that I haven't had someone to spend Valentine's Day with. Last year Matt was on deployment, this year he'll be away for job training, next year he'll be on deployment ... But perhaps you'll make it up to me by suggesting one or all of these Valentine's Day gifties to my man:

1. Red roses, while beautiful, are probably the second biggest V-Day cliche after chocolate. Send me some pink roses, or a bouquet of something completely nontraditional, and I'll be really blown away.

2. Fossil really outdid themselves this Valentine's Day. I'm sure it isn't coincidental that they are currently featuring rosy hued accessories on their site, and this watch combines rose and chocolate brown!
3. I am a candle fiend, and Sun and Sand is my favorite Yankee Candle scent. I don't know how they did it, but this scent seriously reminds me of sand and sunscreen and immediately transports me to the beach.

4. Matt is sick of anchors, and I don't blame him, since he's around real ones all day long. Nonetheless, I would love to have a dainty anchor necklace with his initial on it to wear in honor of my guy, especially when he's out to sea!

5. Since my beloved Ralph Lauren Cool doesn't seem to be making a comeback anytime soon, I suppose I need to move on. Coach Poppy Flower suits me well, I've already tried it on and everything!

Great gifts make everything better, right?

  1. And maybe a date to see Beauty and the Beast 3D? We can sneak in some champagne! <3 Jess
