Unfortunately, when Dan & I started dating, I made the huge mistake of saying that Valentine's Day is just another day, and flowers are just something that die. *sigh* Yes, I said that to him. WHAT WAS I THINKING? Of course, 6 years later, I do wish I wouldn't have said that outloud. It'd be nice to get a card or flowers or even just a quick peck and a "Happy Valentine's Day". But no. And really, I'm alright with that. Really I am. But like I said, it'd be nice to be surprised just once with something sweet. Of course, Dan's not a romantic kind of guy. He proposed to me after I'd worked a 12 hour day at Sears Portrait Studio (Saturday after Thanksgiving--busiest day at the studio!) I'd had no lunch break, so of course, when I got home I raided the fridge. He yells from the living room, "Mary, come here, I got something for you." For me? What could he possibly have for me? And right there, in his icky old blue armchair, he sat with the ring popped open. He said, "Here." I said, "What's that?" of course knowing full well what it was. He just held it closer to me and said, "Here." And so I said, "Yeah, so?" And then he finally said, "Will you marry me?" And then I quickly said, "YES!" And then he snapped the box shut and said, "Oh, that was too fast." *haha* Yeah, too funny. "Give me the BOX!" and then I ran and called my parents. So that's our story. Not romantic, but cute in a lame sort of way ;). Tee hee.
In light of the lack of romance here, though, I made some cute little valentine words to add to your pages. Hope you enjoy them! I have to give credit to Chark for inspiring me on these. She gave out the cutest little freebie at our MiniSwapCrop and it flipped a switch somewhere in the hallows of my brain to do these. I'd love to see your pages with them! *hugs* Mary:)
to get your freebie! And Happy Valentine's Day!
