Valentine's Day...Two Hearts ...One Love...& Romantic Deliciousness...;~)
"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!"
~ Hamilton Wright Mabie
Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is a holiday observed on February 14 honoring one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering sweet sentiments, sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"), and receiving delicious chocolates. The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. It was first established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD, and was later deleted from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI. Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.
There's nothing like a romantic dinner between you and your sweetie......"My Heart" as I so affectionately refer to mines. Valentine's Day is the perfect day to dedicate to your one true love, for it is the most romantic day of the year and dedicated to love. There are many ways to show your love and affection for your special heart. You can do a DIY project and express your love through craft, making your own card or basket can prove to be very inexpensive on the pockets and in 2012, this is something you want to think about....As we bring in the new year , and celebrate the love hot holiday we don't want to break ourselves. This year is about being economical and guaranteeing our future will be secure. Now if you are in a better position to splurge, then by all means. Painting the town red, pink and white, with your love. How about dinner at a beautiful
