I told a friend of mine recently that I do believe
is my favorite winter month

While I don't exactly agree with all the commercial aspect of Valentine's Day
you can always leave that part out of it 
and depend upon 
your very own romantic and creative self

Here's what's going down at our house!

it's half past kissing time and time to kiss again!

for this, I highly recommend, 

a St. Germain and Champagne cocktail?

take a moment to sit down and read
words of love
spoken out loud,
words of love can move mountains
Keep your arrow pointed true

make love your greatest aim

live it with all the things in your possession

seal it

remind yourself of it

believe in it

share it

one cold fall day we found ourselves in the 
Land of Enchantment
and as we were leaving this dreamy day
he said to me
" wanna marry me, don't you"

I said yes

Gina I love this post. I also love the cocktail only I add a strawberrie cored to form a heart shaped slice. I think slowing down and soaking in the real meaning of the day of celebrating love is refreshing and the true meaning of Valentine's Day.
