You can add romance to your life without spending a ton of money.
A little time and some creativity is all it takes.
When Gwynly and I were younger and our mortage payment was taking a big bite out of our monthly budget, we decided to celebrate our 13th anniversary on the cheap. We couldn’t afford to go to a swanky restaurant, so on Dec. 19, 2000 we headed to In ‘n Out Burger with a few items to spiff up our table.
The staff thought our decorations were great. Some of the customers were impressed, others were amused, and still others looked at us like we were nuts. The important thing was that, despite our financial limitations, we had a blast.
