After a romantic dinner turn on some romantic music and dance slowly together to the music, holding your lover close.

A hundred hearts would be too few
To carry all my love for you.

Love letter of the Day:

Journey of Love

To My Dearest Love, Jennifer

Everyday that passes

I feel that I love you more

I feel thankful for the times we spend together

I know and feel that you are my perfect companion

And friend

And I’d choose you again…

And again…

And again!

Naturally we have difficult moments

But I would not give up even these

Because it’s a part of the Journey of love

That we’ve been on

I want to travel by your side…

Forever

Because I Love You

Love you forever and always,

Jonathan

Poem of the Day:

Valentine’s a day to say, “I love you,”
A ritual that stages something real,
Letting out the truth of what I feel
Even as I think it often of you.
Nor could I with such grace without this day
Tell you that I’m grateful that I have you,
Impress upon you just how much I need you,
Needing such a frame for what I say
Even as I would my heart reveal.

Valentine’s Day Story:

I had only been dating my boyfriend for about two months by Valentine’s Day, so I wasn’t expecting much. I would have been happy just spending time with him, watching a movie in his living room, cuddling on the couch like we usually did. What I didn’t expect was the evening he had in store for me.
My boyfriend had told me the day before that he was going to make dinner for us at 6:30pm, and that we were going to watch one of my favorite movies afterward. I was upset when he called at 6pm to tell me that there was a change in plans and I wasn’t going to be able to come over. I started to complain, and ask him why he was changing the plans, but he told me not to worry, and that he would explain everything when he came over later.
I was confused by the change, and mad that he wouldn’t tell me right away what the reasoning behind it was, but I waited for him, hoping nothing had gone wrong for him at home.
I heard a knock on my door at around 7:30pm, and so I went to the door, ready for an explanation of the what had been happening that evening. When I opened the door, however, I forgot just about everything I was angry about because I was taken aback by the image in my doorway.
He had on a pair of cute jeans, a fitted dark green t-shirt (one of my favorites, as it accentuated his good physique), and a black suit jacket. I normally thought he looked good, but that day he looked more like a model than the boy I was used to. When our eyes met, he smiled broadly, and said, “Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetie,” while he took a beautiful orange rose from behind his back.
He walked me to his car, but before he opened the door for me, he had me put on a blindfold. I was very confused, but did as he asked, and he helped me into the car. The car ride wasn’t too long, but the best part was the music he played. He had made a mixed cd of some of my favorite songs, and every time I’d ask where we were going, he said not to worry about it, and to just listen to the music.
After a while, the car stopped, and he helped me out, still blindfolded. He took my arm, told me we were almost there and lead me forward. We stopped, and he walked behind me, putting both hands on my shoulders. “Are you ready?” he asked. I didn’t know how to respond, so I just nodded. He took off my blindfold, and in front of me stood a beautiful carriage with two white horses tied to it. There was a friendly looking older man sitting in the driver’s seat, and a blanket in the back.
We rode around the park for about half an hour, just cuddling in the back of the carriage, his arm around my shoulder, his other hand holding mine. I spent most of the time with my head down, looking at my rose and listening to his heart, but when I looked up, he would give me the most beautiful smile.
The night had already been great, but it was topped of with him telling me he was the luckiest guy alive and giving me the best kiss of my life.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Date of the Day: Fill up a bath with hot water and bubbles. If you’re not at that place yet, throw on swimsuits and make an indoor beach party of it. A great way to warm up the winter.

Gift of the Day: A single red rose. Classy and very romantic.

Quote of the Day: If I had a flower for every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my garden.

Claudia Ghandi

I am totally devoted to you. Sinc you have become part of my life. I have become a better person. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you.
With all my heart.

Poem of the Day:

Will you be my Valentine?
I know that I am yours.
You are like a tossing sea
And I am like your shores.

You are like an endless wave
And I your waiting sand.
And I will wait forever as
You come and smooth my hand.

I will wait forever, yet
You are a part of me.
I hold you in my arms, while you
Come to me endlessly.

Will you be my Valentine?
I know that I am yours.
I love you with a love that yearns
To be your golden shores.

Valentine’s Day Story:

The most romantic thing I ever did for my boyfriend (now husband) was to create a Valentine that let him know I was thinking of him all day long. I created eight hand made Valentine cards with stickers, lacy doilies, scrapbook materials, and fancy edged scissors, the result was that they were all very cute and very “Valentiney.” I was sure to make each one as different as possible so they weren’t all boring folded in half cards. It took a lot of time, and it showed in the end product.

Then I arranged for one of his co-workers to “mysteriously” put one of the cards on his desk each hour throughout the workday. For the first seven cards I didn’t sign them, so there was an air of mystery about who the cards were coming from. The last card revealed that they were all from me and gave him directions as to where to meet me for dinner that night.

Even though this wasn’t the most elaborate or expensive Valentine’s Day surprises, he really loved it because he knew it had taken me a long time to make the cards and make arrangements for them to be delivered to him. I think that creativity and giving something that you’ve crafted with your own hands are some of the best ways to show your sweetheart that you absolutely love and care for them. My husband still has all the Valentine’s I sent him that day, even though it’s been almost five years now.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Quote of the Day:

“It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together … and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home. .. only to no home I’d ever known … I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like … magic.”

—Sam (Tom Hanks)

Sleepless in Seattle.

Love letter of the Day:

After the two delightful evenings spent yesterday and the day before, I shall certainly not go out tonight, but will sit here at home and write to you.

Besides, my Adele, my adorable and adored Adele, what have I not to tell you?

O, God! for two days, I have been asking myself every moment if such happiness is not a dream.

It seems to me that what I feel is not of earth. I cannot yet comprehend this cloudless heaven.

You do not yet know, Adele, to what I had resigned myself. Alas, do I know it myself?

Because I was weak, I fancied I was calm; because I was preparing myself for all the mad follies of despair, I thought I was courageous and resigned.

Ah! let me cast myself humbly at your feet, you who are so grand, so tender and strong!

I had been thinking that the utmost limit of my devotion could only be the sacrifice of my life; but you, my generous love, were ready to sacrifice for me the repose of yours.

You have been privileged to receive every gift from nature, you have both fortitude and tears.

Oh, Adele, do not mistake these words for blind enthusiasm – enthusiasm for you has lasted all my life, and increased day by day.

My whole soul is yours.

If my entire existence had not been yours, the harmony of my being would have been lost, and I must have died — died inevitably.

These were my meditations, Adele, when the letter that was to bring me hope of else despair arrived.

If you love me, you know what must have been my joy. What I know you may have felt, I will not describe.

My Adele, why is there no word for this but joy? Is it because there is no power in human speech to express such happiness?

The sudden bound from mournful resignation to infinite felicity seemed to upset me. Even now I am still beside myself and sometimes I tremble lest I should suddenly awaken from this dream divine.

Oh, now you are mine! At last you are mine! Soon — in a few months, perhaps, my angel will sleep in my arms, will awaken in my arms, will live there.

All your thoughts at all moments, all your looks will be for me; all my thoughts, all my moments, all my looks, will be for you!

My Adele!

Adieu, my angel, my beloved Adele! Adieu!

I will kiss your hair and go to bed.

Still I am far from you, but I can dream of you.

Soon perhaps you will be at my side.

Adieu; pardon the delirium of your husband who embraces you, and who adores you, both for this life and another.

Victor Hugo to Adele Foucher

March 15, 1822

Poem of the Day:

On Valentine’s Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.

I am fortunate to know you,
That’s why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Joanna Fuchs

Valentine’s Day Story:

I actually had a midterm on Valentines day! I thought it would ruin the whole evening. Then my boyfriend showed up at the door of the classroom with a stuffed animal puppy and a big hug. I never loved him more.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love letter of the Day:

Dear Asha,

You are my everything. Thank you for loving me the way no one can. You understand me and you know just how to make things right. You will never know just how much I love you, but I will spend the rest of my days trying to show you. You saved me from the worst, and you are always there for me. Fighting is never an option and making love is always as sweet as the first time. No matter what, there will never be another for me and I will always keep you safe. I love you… for all eternity. Thank you, Asha!

Love always,

Poem of the Day:

Love is the sweetest emotion,

That springs in my heart,

Love is like that tender kiss,

You gave me at the start,

Love is to see that special smile,

Appear on your face,

Love is like a bouquet,

With its trimmings & lace

Love is like sunshine,

Strong & true,

Love is all that I feel so deeply for you

Valentine’s Day Story:

When my father fought in WWII. One of his friends was a florist and they made a deal. My father fought for three years. For those three years my mother would receive a beautiful bouquet on her birthday, their anniversary, and on Valentine’s day with a note saying how much my father loved her.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
