My husband says he's lucky because I'm not into the whole Valentine's Day thing. I don't want flowers or candy or cards just because it's Feb. 14th and everyone else is doing it. Instead, we surprise each other through out the year with special dinners or flowers or other little things - that's how love should be.
Valentine's Day is all well and good. My parents always bought little things for us... spending a couple of bucks on each of us... just to know they cared. I'm sure if we have kids I might do the same thing but I really prefer the day-to-day surprises in life.
