Shutterfly asks me: What does Valentine's mean to you? Well, when I was younger (a teenager) I thought it meant being with a man and was special because he sent me flowers and a balloon to school. I was not left out in the "Love" department. I did not want to be one of those envious girl off to the side that got nothing. But now, I look back and think, how foolish! Yes, it is nice to get flowers and a balloon or a stuffed animal and chocolates, but Valentines means much more to me now that I am older (we will not say how much older).
I love my Family everyday and I love Valentines because it is a day that my children flood me with hugs and kisses and the handmade cards and hearts made at school and at home. My hubby is not a very openly emotional guy, but on Valentines he does open up more and shows his love for me, and even though I do not mind not getting a gift, he gets me one every year. It is nothing big, but he started a tradition with our first Valentines together to buy me a stuffed animal and has gotten me one every year after that. They are not always bears, sometimes frogs (I love frogs). They are all cute and I love them (but running out of places to put them.)
Anyways, to me, Valentines Day is a day to show the ones you really love and adore just how much they mean to you! Whether it is through a gift, words or affection, they know how much you care.
