A lovely post.

We don't celebrate V-Day here. I make cards with the kids to hand out at school, because who needs one extra reason to stand out from the crowd at 3 and 7? But my husband has been well-trained in the mantra: "A fistful of ditch flowers on some random Tuesday mean more than a box of chocolates and a diamond on Valentine's Day."


I certainly find the 'hallmarkiness' [is that a word?] fairly nauseating myself. However, the 'inclusiveness' of Valentines Day out here in the States is growing on me.
Best wishes


*sigh* What a wonderful post! I, a self-professed lover of Valentine's Day (I ignore all those diamond commercials), at first thought I wouldn't enjoy reading, but the payoff was BIG and warmed my heart.

Keep writing! I'll keep reading...

Umm, that could quite possibly be the sweetest post I have ever read! Hidden cards, are you kidding me? Talk about heart-melting...congrats on keeping the romance alive! For me on Vday there is nothing better than a warm, intimate dinner at home (as laid back as possible, in my opinion!) I just believe that it is so, soo important to have a day where you focus on your loved one and letting them know how much they mean to you. I just so happen to have the inside scoop on a fantastic contest about love and expressing love going on right now that you ladies should definitely take a quick peek at sometime; I work for Dove Chocolates (perfect for this time of year, huh? haha) and we have this contest going on right now called the "Expressions of Love" contest, where we're basically asking ladies like you to submit their most creative ideas for letting someone know you love them...and get this, the winner will receive a 5.58cts "Baby's Breath" diamond necklace worth $21,000!! THAT would definitely be a nice trinket to open on Vday ;) I'd definitely love to have some ladies like you who really do care about Valentine's day enter, so feel free to go to www.mydovechocolate.com and leave your most creative submission!
We also have these ridiculously adorable customizable boxes of chocolates available for Vday this year, so if you're trying to think of cute gift ideas, definitely take a look ;)
Thank you ladies, hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, and let me know if you enter! :0)

Gasp! He didn't go to Jarrod?!

Yours sounds dreamy.

We hug and kiss in front of the boys and they join in the hug.


This post reminds me of a great quote I read once - "Love is what we eat from one bowl and it fills us." Kind of uber-Zen, but I like the idea of love being the day to day that carries us on.

I do like Valentine's day - but from a cute decoration & baked good stand-point. We don't usually exchange gifts...we just have a romantic dinner, but that's something we try to do once a month or so anyhow!

Oh my god, that's the sweetest thing I've ever read. I'm all teary-eyed over here.

I put up a post about my loathing of Valentine's day today, too. It's not nearly as sweet as yours.
