instead of the usual hot lemon water, yoga and breakfast, begin you’re morning with a cup of really good coffee and a square of 101 cookbooks chocolate tart. it’ll hit him like a ton of bricks (kisses). he’ll be surprised how it tastes just like a giant candy bar and totally impressed with the flakes of sea salt.
turn on the stereo and play the brand new (releasing tomorrow) album our version of events, by emeli sande. she crushes like leona lewis with beats and killer vocals never being too sappy. she’s an actual song writer, transforming emotion into movement. at a certain point surprise him with a kiss and a couple of dance moves probably while listening to this song:
later on in the day you’ll want to get started on a lamb shank stew. after 6 hours of slow simmering aromatic madness, he’ll practically be a puddle, offering to help make the salad, set the table or whatever else you need. for a little dinner ambiance i’ll have to recommend a tea lite candle set in something that will flicker prettily (nothing too fancy), wine in a small mason jar (again, nothing too fancy) and something like birdy’s skinny love, or a little jazzy something playing in the background.
at the end of the evening if you want to get a little sentimental, this could be a good song to have in the background while out under the stars or sitting on the porch, or maybe just brushing your teeth.
