Valentines day is one of those... maybe we do, maybe we don't "celebration" days. I'm not one of those women that needs chocolates and flowers on this day to be happy. I do like to make a "special" or romantic dinner (preferably for 2). When the kids were little it was nice to go out for dinner, but now that they're teenagers and not quite so "needy" it doesn't seem to matter much to me.
I like to leave little love notes around the house to let my dh know that I am thinking of him.
We definitely celebrate Valentines's Day...it's our Anniversary. lol Hubby usually does bring me a dozen roses and such.
We usually go out to eat, just the two of us.
When the kids were younger, they would stay with the Grandparents while we took a overnight 'get a way'. Although we haven't done that in a while...crazy dogs and such...lol
My Husband and I have not celebrated Valentines Day since our son passed away 7 and 1/2 years ago. I do celebrate with my 2 grandchildren though as they are the best valentines I could ever have asked for.
We don't do anything special as a couple for Valentines. I do still get the boys a small heart box of chocolates, think they would really miss it if I didn't, lol. I prefer to do the little things throughout the year rather than just one particular day. If I have to travel I leave little notes around the house on the mirrors, windows and glass (use a dry erase marker) for each person. They then go on a hunt for what might be for them and where.
