Marquis from Simply Clarke

Happy Monday sweet friends!  In honor of the day of love coming up this week, I have a very special friend to introduce y'all to.  Friends meet the beautiful - inside and out - Marquis!  Her blog is adorable and I hope you will check it out and below she has left us with some great ideas for date ideas on Valentine's Day!  Enjoy xox


Hello Gratefully Inspired Followers!


My name is Marquis Clarke and you can normally find me at Simply Clarke. I love being a wife to my wonderful husband Kevin Clarke and I love God with all my heart. I have a passion for Children's Ministry and College Ministry. The bible is my inspiration and I believe that life is breathtakingly beautiful. 

10 Valentine’s Date Ideas




(1) Avoid crowded restaurants; pick up your favorite dinner to go and dine under the stars, at a park, or by candlelight on a blanket in the living room. 

(2) Take out your wedding video/pictures and watch how the conversation and memories come back.

 (3) Game Night: take out your favorite board games and let the competition begin. Better yet, make it a championship. Play your 3 favorite games and see who is the ultimate champion. {make sweet valentines treats to eat while playing} 

 (4) Begin the fun when you first wake up. Leave notes in places for him to find around the house (milk, bathroom, shower, next to car keys). Give him hints about the night and write little things you love about him. Continue this throughout the day in the form of texts. This will keep you both anticipating ALL DAY! 

 (5) Go to a playground. Have a Frisbee or football packed in the car and just play together. 

 (6) The classic: Dinner and a Movie – order pizza, rent a redbox and enjoy a nice evening snuggled up at home. 

 (7) Wii or Xbox game night -same idea as the game night above except “virtually”. 
 (8) Go to a go-cart / put-put golf place and have a blast! 

 (9) Enjoy going out? Go to dinner and a movie; or better yet, see two movies (your choice and his).

 (10) Dessert. Dessert. Dessert. Go to three different restaurants and only order dessert. After all, its Valentines day.

I love all of these ideas, but particularly the games night and the idea of going out just for pudding... No one to do this with this year, but I will definitely be storing these ideas up for another time!
