Bates: Shop local for romantic gifts for Valentine's Day
My daughter, Amy, married a romantic. Now, don’t get me wrong. Her husband, Alan, has two feet on the ground, helping to raise two young boys while managing the accounting department of an international firm. Yet he is wonderfully romantic. Lucky Amy!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I am sharing just one heart-fluttering idea Alan had. I hope the gentlemen reading this will follow Alan’s lead. A couple of Valentine's Days ago, Alan presented my daughter with six weeks of Amy Wednesdays. You may ask what are Amy Wednesdays? Simple. Every Wednesday for six weeks Amy received from Alan a surprise activity or gift.
Amy anticipated eagerly each Wednesday during the next six weeks. One Wednesday she received a dozen red roses. Another Wednesday she was taken out to dinner at a restaurant she had never been to. Yet another Wednesday it was breakfast in bed. The next Wednesday she received her favorite Rogers and Hammerstein DVD musicals, and the last Wednesday was simply a slow walk along the Riverwalk holding hands.
