Trail Blazing

September 22, 2012

in the generous life

From The Generous Wife archive:

A romantic twist to any plan is the use of a “trail.” 

By this I mean to leave a trail of items or clues to get your husband from where he is to where he needs to be.  You can leave a trail of items (flower petals, Hershey’s kisses, or paper cut out shapes like hearts) or a ribbon (yarn, string) to follow.  You could also leave a series of clues.  If you wanted to, you could use the clues to help him gather up items that he will need when he “arrives.”

Trails can lead to the bedroom, the dinner table, the couch (for movie night) or an outfit laid out on the bed (where he can dress and be whisked away to a special event).  Tuck the “trail” idea in the back of your head and use it when you have the opportunity.  (There are definite holiday uses, I’m thinkin’.)

A trail of clothing leading to the bedroom is fun. I haven’t been able to do this one now that my elderly dad lives with us, but someday I’ll get back to it. :-)
