Trillian and I spent time laughing over the Valentine's ads in our university newspaper. Four days later we became a couple. (And if I'm doing my math correctly, your second Valentine's Day was also ours.) So for us, V-Day always pales in comparison with our day.

I've managed to find new joy in the holiday because of having kids. Scooter, of course, is all about the candy and cool cards he gets (a Clone Wars card that is sort of a hologram is his favorite). And I guess I had more progressive teachers, as we were always required to give cards to everybody if we gave any at all.

I think we all have our own personal interpretations of the day--it took awhile for me to come around to even liking Valentine's Day, let alone loving it. Some years I love it more than others, I suppose!

Find the beauty in the ordinary and the extraordinary--that's what life is about most of the time!
