I feel like Valentine’s Day gives us all an excuse to spend time with our loved ones, but we never seem to get enough special moments throughout the rest of the year. I decided I wanted to celebrate Valentine’s Day every week, so that’s what Dustin and I have been doing. Last week we grabbed a bottle of wine, I made it all cute with some macaroons, and we sat down with our Shaw BlueSky TV fireplace on to add a romantic and warm touch to the evening. For those of you who don’t know, you can use your Shaw BlueSky TV’s voice command and say “fireplace” and it will automatically take you to the Netflix 4k Fireplace stream. Complete with crackling embers and all!
Normally we’d just sit there with a glass of wine and tell our TV to open Netflix so we can watch a movie because we are such movie buffs. Yet, lately we have been opting to just try to talk to each other more. I never really realized how important it was to just chat. Whether it be catching up on each other’s day, chit-chat about current affairs and politics, or just goofing around with one another. It’s all made such a positive difference in our interaction. The fireplace on Netflix gives an otherwise normal conversation a bit of romance too.
After all, my number one complaint these days is that I don’t get enough time with my better half. Travelling for a living has a way of making quality time even more challenging. Especially when your partner can’t come with you. That’s why it’s been super important to me to spend simple, yet meaningful nights like this with Dustin.
