In Defense of Valentine's Day

I'm getting - sort of - caught up with some of what's sitting in Google Reader. It seems poor Valentine's Day is/was getting trashed! We like Valentine's Day! I send of boxes of treats to the Precious Daughters! We were traveling this year, but ordinarily we go out for dinner! This Monday - the 15th by the way - The Saint had these delivered to my office.

Aw shit, terrible camera phone picture. Much prettier in real life. Well any way, it was very sweet and made me smile. Color me shallow if you will, but when I look at them it makes me feel cherished.

Your Saint is very sweet. I have just had bad experiences with Valentine's Day, however I do always get something for my girls. This year it was a stuffed bear, some chocolate, a CD for the older one and a DVD for the little one. I'm glad your husband does sweet things for you. I guess I would like the day more if I felt a little more...appreciated, I guess.

As far as I am concerned, everyone should receive flowers on Valentine's Day. There is something lovely about a pretty arrangement of fresh flowers that appeals to all of us.

I look forward to the day when I have a special one who will send me flowers...and for whom I can do sweet things, too.

SO pretty! The Saint has great taste!
And that is sweet of you to remember your girls. I do believe in care packages. Especially on holidays!

You are very cherished! (Even by those of us who don't get flowers from our husbands on Valentine's Day).

Shortman got a care package, too.
