For their first V-day together as a married couple, Eat Sleep Wear blogger Kimberly Pesch and her husband Blake hit the L.A. coast for a simply sweet get-together on the sand. According to Kim, “I always want to chase sunsets with him and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a perfect beach date.
“I’m all for appreciating your significant other throughout the year, not just on one particular day,” says blogger and true romantic Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam. “However, it’s always a nice excuse to use for a date night, getaway or even just a little love note.” This year, Julia and husband Thomas decided to celebrate V-Day with a return to an inn in California wine country where they enjoyed a happy anniversary.
L.A. Blogger Grasie Mercedes’ romance with her husband Damien began with a first date at a local taqueria. “Since that magical night, when we fell in love over chips and guac, Mexican restaurants have been our favorite date night spots.” This year, she’s recreated that margarita-loving atmosphere at home for a casual, colorful V-day date idea.
When Hello Fashion’s Christine Andrew and her husband Cody were dating, he impressed his lady love with an elaborate scavenger hunt involving her favorite places, songs and foods. “It is still one of my all-time favorite dates,” Christine recalls, plus, “You can adapt a treasure hunt for any wallet, whether you include budget-friendly ideas or go for the gold with extravagant ideas.”
With lots of work-related travel coming up, Sazan Hendrix and husband Stevie chose to celebrate Valentine’s Day early in a fun, easy way. “We decided to be a little cheesy and head out to Santa Monica Pier for the sunset (complete with cotton candy and popcorn, of course),” says Sazan. A true believer in keeping
