We were filling little man's cards out and he wanted to put the little heart stickers on me instead of the cards, because 'he loves me so much.' Awwww, that was my Valentine's Day right there!
Hubby and I have plans coming up soon so I tried to beg off the holiday (first time I've ever tried) by saying we should not exchange gifts this year and save our money instead. He nixed that instantly with an, 'Of course we're going to celebrate the holiday,' and that was that. He's far more romantic than I am. A writer at heart (his calling that he should be doing, but doesn't...but that's a different story), a dreamer... He's also very frugal and practical, so it makes me laugh that he likes such a frilly holiday (I don't laugh where he can hear me).
I, on the other hand, am not nearly as frugal, and am certainly not as practical (in a lot of ways), and I could care less about the holiday. Go figure.
BUT, I do hope each and every one of you has a great holiday. I'll be heading over to the Valentine's Day party at the elementary school today (I'm in charge of passing out the ice cream ;) ), and tonight we'll be going out to dinner as a family and exchanging gifts/chocolate hearts as usual. The kids will like it, and my husband will too, so I guess that's what the day is really about.
Happy Valentine's Day, everybody, if you celebrate it (happy Thursday, if you don't).
