I've never been big on Valentine's Day. Not in an anti, I hate love kinda way, just never thought of it as anything special. I used to think it was because I never happened to be dating anyone come that mid February day. Heck, I was 24 the first time I even spent the holiday with anyone remotely special and even that couldn't spark the cupid in me. It's not that me and my husband aren't romantic...in fact quite the opposite. However I want my hubs to be romantic on his terms, not because Hallmark tells him to buy me a mushy card and send me flowers. It's the out of the blue, element of surprise romance that gets my heart a flutter! Regardless of all of this, can I tell you that every year I usually get flowers because my husband is afraid I'm faking all my anti-Valentine's Day rants and will be mad if I don't get anything. Haha. He's probably right! Every time my phone rings I'm hoping it's the front desk telling me I have a delivery, I'm so bad! So this morning I picked up his favorite carrot cake cupcake from the local market.....and a blue powerade. It may not scream I love you, but he'll be excited and that's what counts. So much for not celebrating!
Happy Valentine's Day from one of my favorite Valentines!
