Valentine’s Day Idea #5

When was the last time you got to sit outside and enjoy the sun? Well, you’re in for a treat because Valentine’s Day is going to be sunny here in Vancouver.. And there’s no better way to spend a sunny day than having a picnic! Don’t deny it, you’ve always wanted to be part of a legitimate picnic. To make it even more personal, try baking a little treat (cookies, cupcakes, etc…), or making/buying your date’s favourite food. This will be an unforgettable, “dreams-come-true”, kind of date.
