Valentine's Day - Another Way

A friend of mine, one properly qualified to state, said to love your partner well is to love them as THEY need to be loved, not as YOU need to be. This was a total revelation for me. She said, it is about understanding your partners needs, desires and qualities and how they make your partner so special, interesting and unique to you. For these are the reasons why you love them. 

So in thinking of Valentine’s Day and in loving my guy HIS way, I have crafted a little gift list of things I want to shower him with. I have also added in an edit of items that I would be most happy to receive. Love is not about gift giving or spending money, but sometimes the gesture of giving, especially a very thoughtful one, is indeed a symbol of love.

The Gallery @Sketch  - Our tradition is for me to cook a fantastic dinner at home as my husband loves most when I cook. But if you don't enjoy cooking, or your partner finds your cooking less than divine, book yourselves in for a gorgeous meal in a romantic space. The Gallery at Sketch still does it for me in a big way.
