I'm not big on Valentines day. DH bought me a new Browning shirts and some tackle the other day and said it was my valentines, and he bought himself a new shirt and some bullets and said it was from me to him lol. He was just trying to get away with spending money lol, neither of us ever celebrate valentines day.

We have never done Valentine's Day. As a professional baker I'm always up to my neck in cookies and cakes and special little things, but at home it's nothing special. We have always been simple like that. I did make a tasty chocolate cake this year though. We had our "French Dinner" last night, it's our favorite. Hubby had to go out of town tonight though.

I believe if you want to do something special you do it on a random Tuesday when you are thinking of your mate. It's spontaneous and special. It doesn't have to be fancy, we have had such great evenings with a movie and popcorn and peanut m&m's for dinner. It's not the planning, it's the moment that makes it special.

I have to say, the happiest and most surprised I have ever been has been when he brought me home some wooden "thing" from work. It was a part of a packaging from some machine, but it has made the single most perfect compost bin ever. THAT to me was special because it showed he was thinking of me. He brought home a huge lab table for a work table for me. The kind with the thick black surface. I love that table. Both times he spent no money but the thought was so special. I remember those times, not something purchased because the calender says so.

For my birthday he was traveling east and brought home two hand made Amish brooms. Most people might roll their eyes and moan, yes, brooms!! They are a work of art!! I don't want to sweep with them they are so pretty.

........however, I am also a very practical, frugal, proper Country Woman. :D well, not that proper.

I got Don a card, he got me a card and some candy, and we went and ate. A friend of ours was teasing him about not buying into the Valentine's frenzy, and I told her that in the nearly 17 years of us being married, the electricity has never been turned off, the water has always been on, the refrigerator has always had food, and I have never needed or wanted anything. He has been the best gift that I have ever received. AND, he still loves me, too!!!! That is plenty! :D

My husband is working and wont be home until tomorrow night, our grandson who is here spending time with his Nana is visiting with his Great Aunt....so I am home alone...in the kitchen...canning some food and dehydrating some fruit...having a blast doing it also :)

Yesterday was our 9 year anniversary (the day we met) and he forgot :( So I am sure I will get flowers (which he knows I would rather have a plant that will last) and he will take me out to dinner....if not...oh well....like several have said already...we dont really celebrate Valentine's day cause we celebrate "us" all the time :) I have the most amazing and awesome husband that puts up with me for the most part :D My life is blessed every day he is in it :)

We adopted a 6 year old four years ago, but she had to live with us for 6 months first as a foster child. The day she came to live here was Valentine's day 2009. So valentines is our special day about her now. Best day we've ever had!! Here she is enjoying her celebratory cake.

My boyfriend usually works very long hours so he decided just to stay home on Valentine's Day and spend it with me just relaxing. We were supposed to go out to dinner but we both had really long stressful week and fell asleep. OOPS! I baked him a cookie cake because he always wanted to try one. :p And I wrote a letter stating how lucky I am to have him in my life. We do small things like this for each other all year long so Valentine's Day is more or less an excuse. haha.
