Valentine’s Day 4-Step Recovery Plan

SS 021413 ValentinesDay LastMinPrep COVER

If you’re waking up this morning feeling bummed about Valentine’s Day, you shouldn’t. Having good, bad & ‘whatever’ V-Days is part of life. Plus, it’s already over and now all the red and pink candies are 65% off. And if you’re in a relationship and the day didn’t go well because of busy schedules and floral headaches, I have a few tips to patch everything up this weekend.

Please ignore the fact that I look like an extra in an Old Navy commercial. After wearing black for a week straight in Zurich, I infused my hiking outfit with every cold-weather neon accessory in my California carry-on. Here’s 4 Tips for a weekend relationship recovery plan starting with doing something outdoorsy…

 1. Take Advantage of  Your Local Surroundings - Past trips…In Denver, we hiked near Boulder. In SF, it’s been sunny and perfect for tennis. If you’re surrounded by snow, go skiing, snowboarding or on a simple snow hike. The other day, Jakob and I went on a hike up this mountain in Switzerland.

2. Give Her R&R - If you’re a guy in a relationship and Valentine’s Day was a bust; surprise her in a few weeks with a trip to the spa, a massage or a mani-pedi appointment at her favorite salon along with a bouquet of her favorite flowers.

3. The KISS Method - (Keep It Simple Stupid Sexy) I hated that phrase growing up, but it does ring true in this case. Our after-hike brunch was simple and delicious, but more importantly I’m learning some European diet-secrets here in Switzerland. They may eat a lot of cheese and chocolates, but they’re slim. Swiss diet tricks coming soon…

4. Outdoor Romance on a Budget - The total cost of the trip once we reached the top of the mountain: 1 Wienerschnitzel for him, 1 pretzel for me, and two little train tickets down the mountain. Sidenote - The Üetliberg (also spelled Uetliberg) is the mountain we’re on in the Swiss plateau, offering a panoramic view of the entire city of Zurich.

    Hi Dale, thanks so much for your comment on my blog, I really appreciate it! This post is lovely and fun – both at the same time. The view from the top of the mountain is amazing, it’s a shame we don’t really get to see snow days like this in London very often… Have a lovely weekend xo
