  3. I purchased it and have started making everything! I am just wondering where the hyperlink is to click on to get the items needed for the special date nights. Please let me know, thanks!

    1. Hi Valerie! That’s wonderful! The hyperlinks are connected to the date titles. On page 14, for instance, just move your mouse over the red text in the direction box to be taken to the appropriate date night idea. On pages 23-24, just click on the red or pink date night title to be connected with the right post.
