Great Gift idea: My husband and I are still working on our healthy lifestyle resolutions (No chocolates this year!) and flower deliveries can be tricky with my job. So, this year we decided to forego the traditional gifts and give ourselves season tickets to Capital City Productions. This gives us 5 amazing date nights throughout the year. No better gift than time together!
