    No question, February 14, 2006 was my absolutely BEST Valentine's Day celebration and it was a complete surprise. My son, who was not due for another week, was born on that date. We had been trying to have a baby for quite some while and, in fact, had two adoptions fall through for babies born on Valentine's Day two years previously. Valentine's Day will never again be my own, but it will always be shared and spectacular.

    Trying to think of my favorite Valentine's day is pretty discouraging, as I am married to a man I love dearly and who loves me just as dearly but who has little to no romantic imagination! Being the class brain throughout grade school meant I wasn't the most popular kid in class, so I got my requisite share of those little penny valentines we gave and received in school, but nothing special. When I think way back, those childhood years of gentile poverty in our parsonage home bring the best Valentine's Days to mind. We had so very little money to work with, so each year we recycled a red satin, heart-shaped box that had come from I-know-not-where. Dad would scrounge up enough to buy chocolate candies to fill it, and we would present it to our mom, who acted as if she'd never seen it before. I think we also made valentines of red construction paper and doilies, etc., but the candies were truly the extravagance for the day. Perhaps that's why I love chocolate so!

    the most memorable was in 5th grade when I received a card from my crush… of course everyone else in the class got one too, but that didn't matter to me then!

    Undoubtedly the best Valentine I had was when thoughtfulness, effort, love, time and effort were put with heart into showing me what I meant to my boyfriend. He planned the whole thing without my knowledge: a gourmet meal prepared by him, notes left with clues around the house describing times we had together and led to another note, champagne, roses and the rest of the night spent in front of the fire just talking and sharing our feelings. We didn't have a lot of money, but this was so rich in heartfelt love and that is all that mattered!

    The baet Valentines day I ever had was the first one I spent with my now husband. We rented a condo on the water in Montauk with another couple for the weekend. A terrible snow storm hit and the other couple left for home. We chose to stay and we were snowed in for a long private weekend. The resort gave us a discounted rate to stay because of the weather. It was so beutiful and we enjoyed each other company.10 years later we still remember it as the best weekend of our lives together.

    :) I think your shared memories were the funniest and may be the most pure thing I ever read these days!
    So nice. :( I can say that I haven't had great St. Valentine's day – cause of so many reasons :( ( one of them – bad love moments )

    Hope this one will be the best ever!

    Best Regards,
