Are you doing anything fun for Valentine's Day? While Corey and I aren't doing anything overly special this year (Romance to me right now is working on finishing the bathroom reno so I can enjoy a bubble bath.) this time of year always takes me back to school days of eagerly anticipating a Valentine or candy-gram from my crush. Do you remember those days?
I once read the sweetest story (I wish I could think of the source) about a boy who said that his parents always gave him money for two candy-grams: one for his crush and one for a kid who probably wouldn't get one otherwise. I always thought it was a really touching story. Would you ever raise your child to do something like this?
So do you celebrate February 14th, do you boycott, or do you fall somewhere in between, like us? For those who are not boycotting, here are some fun/romantic links and gift ideas:
These hilarious cards cracked me up! I'd love to send myself one of these. ;)
