Happy Valentine's Day


This year Hallmark had a new slogan – Valentine’s Day is a day to say I love us.
I really liked this slogan. I could relate to it. I think that’s why it stuck in my mind. I’d rather celebrate us than just him. Without a spouse or significant other there is no US.
If you don’t have that someone special to spend it, then celebrate with a friend or family.

Every year I try to do something unique for him. Last year I tied little sayings to Lindt chocolates, so that every time he ate a piece he had a little reminder of me. :o) Goofy? Maybe, but I know it melted his heart.
Yesterday I ran out and bought him a heart-shaped chocolate chip cookie from the bakery. He loves the cookie pies. I bought a funny and a sentimental card, along with a few gift cards. I wish I could tell you I did something unique, but life has been hectic and Valentine’s Day was here before I had a chance to think about it.
How about you? Do you say I Love You in little ways?
Happy Valentine’s Day!

How sweet - loved your post, Amber. To me, it's the everyday expression of affection that matters most, not just candy and flowers on Valentine's Day.

I agree the "I love us" slogan is a nice one. We are transformed by love and each pairing is unique.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Best--Adele

Its a great slogan. Valentine's Day is for everyone! We all deserve more love and sweet gestures in our lives.
I love the idea of tying little notes to chocolate kisses. I think I'll borrow your idea. My first note will read: "Please buy more chocolate kisses"!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I love the idea that there is an "us". Now I just have to find the other half of "us". LOL!
