I love Valentines. Not as a romantic holiday because, let's face it, I didn't marry a terribly romantic man (wonderful yes, romantic, uh no) and I can grab a romance novel any day of the week. But Valentines means there will be chocolate readily available -- so what's not to love?
Plus, I dislike cut flowers. I prefer flower's who won't die in a week and aren't crazy expensive. Not knocking those who do, just my personal preference. But if my hubby would get me bouquet like this I'd be in heaven... oh wait. He did get me books. Good man!
For picture books on valentines one of my favorites is Snowy Valentine by David Petersen
