Valentine's Day!

I am not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. Sure, I appreciate the added love and chocolate given by your husband, or lover, but...for the most part, I don't think you need a day to show someone how much you care. I think Valentine's Day is a hallmark day. A day to raise the prices of flowers to a ridiculous rate, and to crowd the sides of streets with teddy bears and silly things. I especially hate teaching on Valentine's Day because their are 3,200 students carrying around teddy bears bigger than themselves, 100 balloons each and they are all on a sugar high from period 1! On the flip side, being a little hypocritical...Matt is the sweetest husband around! We decided that we are going to start a new tradition of making our Valentine cards. Since Matt loves to make things, tinker with his hands in the garage, I decided to make his out of metal. I love to eat, so Matt made mine out of chocolate.Here are the final products!




For not loving Valentine's Day, Matt did a fantastic job of making it a great, romantic day for me. I had volleyball practice, so while I was gone, Matt ordered Cafe Rio (my favorite) and we had chocolate fondue with Morgan and Lauren. It was a great way to spend the evening with loved ones!

I echo your sentiments about Valentine's. Lame-o! :) We ordered a pizza and that was good enough for us! Love the pictures though. The card was quite impressive...good job Matt!
