This post was a mystery until I started to read it - I am swedish and although we are sort of importing the habit to celebrate valentines day it is not very spread yet. I thought of buying daughter some heartshaped candy, but that is just an excuse to "accidently" buy some for myself...

We aren't planning anything special for Valentine's Day either. I often make a special meal for my hubby, but this year it's on a meeting night so that means a quick dinner and out the door. I try and show him each and every day that he's the most special man in the world to me.

Persevere. Even if you fall on your face, you have moved forward.

PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION.

I have in the past made my husband his favorite meatloaf shaped in a heart! Aw = how sweet! He loved it. My granddaughter would like to make anything in the shape of a heart - so who knows. My joe is working late this year so it doesn't look like a celebration of the traditional kind. I don't think i've ever been out for dinner on valentines day - not that i can remember.
Whatever we do( most likey nothing special) we will enjoy each others company.

PS - i used to like white castle as a kid -

My Guy and I have had special dinners in very unlikely places. It's more about enjoying each other's company. I'm glad we don't feel obligated to celebrate Valentine's Day or any other holiday in a traditional way. We won't be going to any restaurants (or fast food joints) on Valentine's Day this year, but we'll certainly enjoy each other's company. Netflix and popcorn sound great to me, too!

Let's walk!

Fortunately I am not a fan of Valentine's Day. When I was a kid, and my kids were kids, it was a kid holiday, with children making silly cards for each other and their Moms. I still have a bunch. For my hubby and me it's just another day to have a nice dinner in our alcohol free home.

A "report" on channel 5 News just informed viewers that Valentine's Day dinner reservations are available for both White Castles and/or The Waffle House.

Back in the day I'd follow a guy home if he LET ME BUY HIM A DRINK!!! (I was very very sick). I would like to think that today, I would not be so disrespectful to myself or anyone else.

So when I saw the report I wondered "How would I feel about a Valentines date to White Castles?........I would not go. Even if the gentleman I was dating was so financially strapped that White Castles is all he could afford - I'd tell him to spend his money on a box of microwave popcorn and lets watch Netflix.
