Valentine's Day

As it's Valentine's Day, I couldn't resist putting up a lovey-dovey, cheesy post today. LOL. Hey it's lovers day after all. I'm such a romantic at heart so I've never had a problem with Valentine's Day. Cynics say it's just a day for florists, chocolatiers, gift shops and restaurants to make more profits. I think whether you are single or in a relationship, it's only a day to remind you to show some love to someone you care deeply about. It could be anybody.

Hubby and I had planned to go out for a meal after work this evening. We had called the restaurant and everything. Unfortunately he came down with a cold yesterday morning so we decided to postponne our outing. This morning though I still got a nice surprise. Hubby woke me up this morning to help him make toast before he left home for work. At first I didn't want to get up but eventually I thought "let me pity him and make the toast". Then I stepped out of bed and saw a trail of red rose petals leading from our room, through the corridor and into the living room. At the end of it were some more flowers, a HUGE card and a box of chocolates. I was sooo tripped. I've always known him to be a practical kind of guy (not the romantic type). But he's surprised me now with a lovely romantic gesture. Now I have to raise my game. LOL. I need some ideas.
(Update! Later that evening.....)
Hubby came to my office just as I closed for the day. After work, we went out for a meal at a nice restaurant. Love was in the air in there as several couples were there as well. The restaurant owner even presented me with a red rose during our meal. Awwwww....

It's my 50th post on this blog as well! That calls for a celebration. Champagne anyone? Cheers!
