Happy Valentines Day 2012 - We are celebrating our 9th Valentine's Day together as a couple this year. Wow, time flies doesn't it? I still remember our first Valentines Day back in February 2004, I was gifted with a lovely ring as a token of his love to me. I still have the ring too!

Other than a few small surprises over the years we have kept pretty low-key when it comes to Valentines Day. We do celebrate, in our own humble way. As much as I would love to go all out and get the kids babysat for us to enjoy a romantic dinner together it's not reality. Especially with Valentines being on a school night :-P 

Us adults usually enjoy a nice quiet evening together after the kids are in bed. We have grown to a point where the flowers, candy and such are nice gestures but its the every day stuff that really counts in the long run. 

For the kids, Valentines Day is about showing how much you care about each other. We gift the kids with a Valentine and a treat each year. Nothing big or over the top. Just enough to say "I love you" :)


What do you do to celebrate the day of Love?
