Happy Valentine's Day!

Crazy day today - got an awesome card from Thomas:
The front said: "Sweetheart, I'd like to give you a Big Hug for Valentine's Day!" and its got a bear
But, when you open it, it says: "... And if my hands should happen to slip down and squeeze your butt, think of it as a hug with an exclamation point. XOXO"
When I got home from work, Tom had made dinner and everything - it was awesome!! He's such a great guy... no French Onion Soup for dinner, but he made salmon, salad and rice. Then afterwards we had chocolate covered strawberries I had brought home from work... so perfect!
We had agreed not to do anything too "special" for Valentine's Day since our 2 year anniversary is coming up at the end of February, but it was nice to have a little something for today.
I'm so grateful for him; he's so absolutely amazing!
Last Valentine's Day, we geeked out at The Titanic Exhibit at the old Science Centre here in Calgary and then spent the rest of the day watching Star Wars - it was the best Valentine's Day I've ever had.

Kind of a cool thing for Valentine's Day - use Hershey's Kisses & Hugs to make dipping chocolate for your fruit! Remember that the Hugs & Kisses aren't usually used for this (aka they're not fondue chocolate) so it's best the put in some milk with it and only put it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time.
Also, another tip - lots of times flower shops will give away bags of rose petals (or other petals) for free (or for a small profit)! If you're not too picky about the appearance of the petals - I mean, if you're scattering them on the bed or in the tub, they're not gonna be perfect anyways ;) - go into your favourite local shop and ask for a bag of their petal scraps or just petals. If they're not specially made, the flower shop may just give them to you!
Happy Love Day!
