    I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day but I do enjoy making it special for my friends. I love the painted rocks idea!

    I love Valentine’s Day. It is fun. I like the crafts posted too, especially the fingerprint tee. It would be fun to make, and when they outgrow the shirt you could put it in one of those memory quilts to keep forever.

    I enjoy making Valentine’s Day treat bags for my little nieces and friends. I also love making thoughtful cards for my family members and mailing them out. It makes for a sweet surprise

    While I do think Valentine’s Day has become a little too Hallmark it is still an important day. It’s really about taking the time to make sure your loved know how much you care about them. These flowers are gorgeous and anyone would be happy to receive them.

    I absolutely love Valentine’s day! Even as a child. I loved giving cards to those who I felt needed love. It doesn’t all just have to do with romance either, it can be for just loving your friends and family as well, it’s so special.

    I love Valentine’s Day, it’s another day I can shower my Family with fun little surprises. My husband and I always surprise each other. I remember the time after my accident, he came home with flowers, candy, cake, and 2 cards. He said he wasn’t sure what to get me so he covered it all. I love sending my Grandchildren a special gift of love from us. It’s just a joyful day for happy people. I love crafts, I’m going over to the Grandkids this weekend to make some valentine goodies. I love your ideas. I love Teleflora arrangements. They come out with so many new arrangements it’s hard to choose one. I’ve always received fresh flowers that really lasted. I call them for any flowers I sent to friends and family.

    Valentine’s Day is a day set apart for you to show that special person(s) or furbaby in your life how much they mean to you. Even though some of us do it year round.

    I’m not , and never have been a fan of Valentine’s Day. It has always seemed gimmicky and forced to me and I rarely celebrate it. I do however love Teleflora bouquets. Actually I just love flowers period.

    I love Valentines Day preparation with my kids. We have so much fun making cards, cookies, cupcakes and a special gift for dad. The kitchen ends up being a complete mess. But it’s worth it to see my kids so happy and having fun

  42. 02/04/2019 / 4:35 pm

    One thing we started this year is doing a “things we love about you” or “positive affirmations” on our kids doors. They wake up to a new one every morning. Normally we just do the cards for school with the kids who still exchange.

    I like Valentine’s Day now that I’m older and married! I hated the pressure young couples and people dating feel to live up to the idea of Valentine’s Day. My husband and I take time to make thoughtful cards for each other and make a nice dinner at home, but that’s really it! True Love!

  68. 01/31/2019 / 11:53 pm

    It’s always nice to get flowers for Valentine’s Day! I don’t know about you, but I’d probably just order my own flowers because it’s been a minute since the hubs has gotten me flowers. (I lied, he gets me roses occasionally, but I hate roses – he knows this – so they don’t count lol.)

    My daughter and I are on our 3rd year of making these Valentine Day Crayons for her class! It’s something she enjoys and she love the comments she gets about them! It’s also an awesome way to get rid of all our broken crayons we accumulate throughout the year!

    As we have gotten older my husband and see Valentine’s day as just another day. My dad use to send my mom a dozen roses every Valentine’s Day though. No matter how much they were struggling financially he was able to buy those and sometimes an extra present. It’s been four years since he passed away and she says that’s what she misses the most!

  84. June S.
    01/30/2019 / 11:45 pm

    My favorite flowers are lilac’s, lily of the valley, daisy’s, mum’s, and of course what woman does not love getting roses.

    I love tulips. One year I received tulips anonymously. I found out who sent them a few weeks later. It was from someone who wanted to get to know me. He thought I was dating someone (I wasn’t) but he said no harm in sending. Well that was 25 yrs ago. Four yrs later I married that man so we recently celebrated our 20th anniversary. Each Valentine’s Day he brings or send tulips to me. It was just a fluke that he sent tulips that first year.
