September is Pleasure Your Mate Month*

Did you know, ¬†September is Pleasure Your Mate Month? I didn’t either, til the good folks at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM clued me in. Since their business is flowers, decadent desserts and gifts, I guess they know such things. It’s actually listed in Chase’s Calendar of Events 2010: The Ultimate Go-to Guide for Special Days, Weeks and Months
so it must be true.

There are even a few specific dates this month, depending on what kind of mate you have: National Singles Week (9/19-9/25), Wife Appreciation Day (9/19), and National Love Note Day (9/24). (sorry guys, you don’t get a day this month)

1-800-FLOWERS.COMhas a few ideas if you’d like to pleasure your mate (I really can’t wait to see what Aksimet catches after this post), chances are they won’t know that there’s a whole month for this and you could score more points because it would appear to be a “just because” gesture.

1-800 Flowers has a full range of gorgeous bouquets anyone would be thrilled to receive.

And if the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then you’ll want to send him a Junior’s cheesecake as a little love note. A chocolate cheesecake was sent to me to try (I did share. A little) and it was delicious. It arrived packed in dry ice and still frozen. A small piece goes a long way–it’s 100% creamy chocolatey goodness.

Other goodies to consider from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM to consider this month:

The All About You arrangement
Juniors Heart Shaped Cheesecake
Chocolate Covered Cherries

*in addition to see what Akismet nets, I can’t wait to see the google searcheso n this one too*

disclosure: 1-800 Flowers sent me a Junior’s Chocolate cheesecake to review and promote Pleasure Your Mate Month. I am always HAPPY to review for cheesecake, contact me if you’ve got a cheesecake for me to try!

Love in the 21st Century, Blog Style

Nine years ago we got married on a sweltering hot day in July. There hasn’t been a dull moment since. Chances are, I’ve blogged a lot of them, since I’ve been blogging for over half of our marriage. ¬†For fun, I linked up my past anniversary tributes. And for the record, yes, I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.
