My boyfriend and I have each gone through divorces that were tough on us. We each survived through humor. We are each on a budget as a result of various factors including the economy, each running our own businesses and raising our children (five between us) as newly single parents.
I thought about what I could do that was romantic, from the heart, but didn't blow the budget, and I decided to write him a (somewhat humorous) song and present it on Valentine's Day. I will also attempt to barbecue him a meal since he is teaching me to barbecue. Throw in a candle, and we have a date! He is very special, so I hope he likes it. I am a little nervous, especially since he is the musical one!
