Valentines Day "I LOVE You"

So this is the week before Valentines day a very busy week for me because I work at a Flower shop which I do love doing by the way. But during this week we get some of the most mushy comments that go to our customers. Thus saying I would like to go back a few years. Growing up my mom and dad always gave me and my brothers something for Valentines day; a box of chocolates, candy or something.... I always knew they loved me and I always loved Valentines day because of it. I loved making that tin foil box in school with the hearts on you cut out of construction paper to glue on. Then better yet geting the coolest card from the cutest boy in the class made you feel soooo good (even tho he never saw it that way) that was always a thrill. Needless to say I always tried to make that particular day fun for my own kids. So here's a shout out to my 5 little valentines out there a tribute to you. Ok I tried to put a picture in and 2 hours later no go, so here goes.....

Two of my daugters absolutely Hate Valentines Day, I won't name names they know who they are. A few years back I desided I wanted to make my oldest at least enjoy this day of Valentines. So Lori and I cut out probably hundreds of hearts to heart attack our yard for her. We had a ball making cute sayings on the hearts and getting them all placed in the yard and hanging from the tree out front of our house. There was also I believe some flowers and candy inside that I claimed was left on the front porch from someone annonimous for this said daughter. I had the boy next door sign the card for me so she would not recognize my hand writting(even tho it was plastered all over the yard outside). I had it all planned out and better yet Lori and I had so much fun doing this all day project. I don't remember my daughters response but I think we brighten her day and not only that I'm pretty sure Lori told her who had done it ( she was my most truefull child & couldn't keep a secret Ha Ha!!) Anyway the moral to my story is Yes Valentines day is for those we LOVE that doesn't mean you have to have a boyfriend to enjoy it. Do something fun for someone you love or just even like it will brighten your day and theirs.

So now I only have 1 daughter who HATES Valentines day because she does not have asignificant other but that will pass. There will be a good guy who will be so good to you; you will love him like I love your father. One more shout out to my sweet Husband who is truely my Valentine he is so creative in the things I get for Valentines day so all who are reading this take note ( I don't have any followers really) He gave me some flowers ( 100 pound bag of flour) & chocolates ( 2 large bottles of hershes chocolate surup) I absolutely loved it. Last year he made a flower with boxes of diet coke in a circle on my bedroom floor with an orchid plant in the center; how clever is that. I look forward to this year to see what he will bring me. Even it is a simple kiss that realy is enough. Love you Dave! And I love all my little valentines out there you know who you are.......Happy Valentines Day!!!!!
