We skip valentines day for a holiday we made up back in college (when the dorm lobby looked like a florist shop once a year) called "Schmalentines Day". This year we are saying nice thinks that really show our feelings but isn't "i love you." Try it, it's fun. You can even throw back to elemntary school teacher comments like... "you're special", "you're the best...." Even "i appreciate you" has melted my heart today.
Have a great one. And hey, maybe next year we'll do Schmalentine's Day shirts!
