My afflictions and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If however your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and that I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
– Pride and Prejudice – Mr. Darcy
This romantic quote is not only one of my favorites, but truly illustrates my feelings for my wife. Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching and I’m reminded of a sweet, but chaotic, evening I surprised my wife with on this romantic day.
Always yearning to become more “outdoorsy”, I planned our first “camping” experience in our backyard. Stocked up with a tent, sleeping bags and an air mattress, I roped my neighbor into helping me set up the backyard in a rush.
We rigged a screen to project our first date movie, Pride and Prejudice. I propped the tent, filled the mattress, spread out the fake rose petals and topped it all off with a bottle of my wife’s favorite wine, 2007 Seghesio Zinfandel. Under Cupid’s spell my wife and I snuggled under the stars with a glass of wine, our dogs and the romance only backyard camping could bring.
So what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? If we can help, we would be honored to extend our professional advice on Wine & Spirits to capture that perfect romantic mood. Cheers!
