After 30 years of marriage, my husband and I can’t be the only couple who don’t get too excited about Valentine’s Day. It’s not all champagne and chocolates anymore. (Green smoothies and hemp seed energy balls are more like it).
Truth is, sometimes we don’t even bother with the schmaltzy Hallmark cards. But after a two-night couples getaway to Cambridge and Waterloo over the winter break, we’re determined to revisit the area for Valentine’s and deliver a shot of adrenaline into the lethargy of our long-term conjugality.
On the agenda: wining, dining, butterflies, walks in the park, a downtown stroll and even an ambitious snowshoe hike. Our soundtrack for the drive? Glenn Miller’s In The Mood.
