Welcome to Frantic Mama's 5 Friday Faves:
Special Valentine's Day Edition.
(Note: The Ruby is sweeter than the Tawny).
2. Return to Me and Moonlight and Valentino: These are two of my favorite romantic movies that you might not have seen. Moonlight got especially terrible reviews, but I think it's great (it even features Bon Jovi! Ha!). Both films are chick flicks, I suppose, but I think guys secretly enjoy them too.
3. A heart-shaped box of chocolates. They can be found lining the shelves of any bland drugstore in America starting in January, but I still like them. I love it when my husband surprises me with one of the really big ones. It's an old-school way to celebrate the holiday.
WoodWick Candles (~$11-25). They have a wooden wick (name says it all), so the candle crackles as it burns. You get the lovely fragrance, the candlelight, and the crackle of a fire all in one little jar. BAM! Romance!
5. There's nothing quite like a juicy read featuring fantastic writing. I've read a couple of good ones recently, but for my Valentine's Day theme, let's go with What Alice Forgot, by Liane Moriarty. It has a little romance, a little mischief, a little tragedy, but [spoiler alert] a happy ending. So good.
*On another Note: My husband proposed to me on Valentine's Day several years ago, so despite the Hallmark-holiday bad rap it gets, Valentine's Day still feels special to us. I hope you have a fun one as well!
