  1. My favorite Valentine's memory is Valentine's Day 2001. It is the day that I gave birth to my second son. I honestly can't remember any Valentine's days before that, and every one after has been all about him. We welcomed him into the world at 6:53 p.m. When I first heard his raspy little cry and big blue eyes .... All I can say is LOVE.

    fave valentine memory.... first valentine's day with my boyfriend//now husband. he called and had to work late so i was home all alone because my family was traveling that week. i decided to take a nap that night because i was so disappointed with v-day.

    next thing i know, the doorbell is ringing and he had made it! he only TOLD me he was working late because he got lost trying to find the florist he placed an order with and couldn't find godiva chocolate to save his life.... then we went out to get seafood and spent a fab first valentine's day together.

  4. I totally follow!

    My favorite Valentine's memory is when my husband, who was deployed at the time, sent me a dozen roses to work and a gift card to a spa. Even being 5,000 miles away he still remembered what day it was.

  6. One year, my best friend and I were both single on Valentines Day. So we had a "dateless Valentines date." We dressed up, and went out to dinner together. So fun!

  8. New to your blog... LOVE!!

    When I was a kid, my mom would make a nice dinner, set the table really fancy, with candles and flowers, and we'd drink sparkling cider from fancy cups, and leave us our Valentine's day gifts... And then we would have dinner together as a family. It was so sweet and special!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Umm I can't remember a special Valentine's day in particular. But, I remember LOVING the fun parties in elementary school. I loved to make & receive sweet little homemade valentines.

  11. so much cuteness!!

    fave memory? is it too cheesy to say last year? my then boyfriend (now husband) cooked me a delicious dinner of asparagus, steak, and garlic mashed potatoes. then we ate chocolate and drank champagne while he read song of soloman to me. it's our new valentine's day tradition :-)

  19. i'm already a follower- and a favorite memory...

    i was a student...taylor was working full time...and we were BROKE.

    but we were married and that's all the mattered.

    we went to chipotle for dinner and split a burrito and had water.

    and laughed at ourselves and fell more in love.

    and you know what...i'm pretty sure we did something fancy the other 3 valentines that we've been married- but the one of us broke at chipotle sticks out the most...i can't even really remember the others ones!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. my favorite Val day memories are as a kid too, and that class party and a desk full of cards. this is an amazing giveaway of happiness!!! how do you do it??

    ReplyDelete
  21. my favorite valentine's memories are as a kid waking up to see that my mom had left a little gift bag for each of us on the counter. it always had a little candy and a little something for us to wear that day, ya know- so we could "wear her love". now i try to do that with my kiddos to carry on the tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a FAB giveaway! I am a follower of you! :) My favorite memory is my Daddy getting me flowers every year when I was a little girl!

  23. Well, I've had many romantic dinners with my husband, but our most interesting one was last year, 2009. My son was just a week old, and I felt like I hadn't slept a wink. A tearful phone call urged my mom to come over. While she held my crying baby, I took a bath, put on makeup and a wrap dress, {real clothes! as in not sweats & a nursing tank} and even a little perfume (I was afraid to wear perfume at first because I wanted to make sure my son knew my smell)
    Then my husband made me a delicious candlelit meal and we ate while I nursed him all through dinner. Life doesn't get more real than that! Wine had never tasted so good either! :)

  24. I follow you on Google Reader. My favorite valentine memory is when I was in grade 2 I came home for lunch on valentine's day and informed my mom that I had invited my entire class over after school for a valentine's day party. I was in HUGE trouble! But my sweet mother pulled together a party. I distinctly remember a treasure hunt for candy all over our house. Love that memory.

    My favorite memory is Valentines Day 2006. Nick (now hubby) was still at school in Boston and I was done with school. He drove home late the night before. Then he went to my house early the next morning (while I was still sleeping) and made breakfast and then woke me up with breakfast in bed. I was sooo shocked to see him! We spent the day together and it was wonderful! He even skipped his classes that day to be with me.

  40. I follow your blog..love the new look! Anyways, my favorite Valentines day would have to be last year. It was our first valentines day as a family, and our first in our apartment. We didnt have a kitchen table at the time, while the boys ran somewhere, I took the coffee table, covered in a red sheet, put pillows all around it, and made them breakfast. They were so suprised when they got home! It was just nice for us all to be together!

  51. i really love your blog.
    my favorite memory is kinda interesting.
    i started as a floral designer.
    it made me hate valentines day.
    that came with me even as a non working mommy.
    i used the excuse that i hated the pressure it put on guys ( and really i was prob. trying to protect myself from the disappointment of hopes not met)
    but three years ago, i realized that this holiday celebrates LOVE!
    i LOVE LOVE!
    i have tons of it!
    we started celebrating as a family and i started making it about MY love that i had for my sweet husband and children and less about love i hoped to receive....
    MY love, the love we celebrate, is a little tiny reflection of the REAL DEAL.
    You know HIS love!
    what's to hate about THAT?
    so cheers and happy valentine's day!
    remember:
    love is patient and kind. it keeps no record of wrongs.
    xoxo

  53. Last Valentines Day (2010)...my husband and I took spent the weekend in Atlanta. We only live about 2 hours away...so we've been MANY times...but THIS it snowed! We in in the Georgia Aquarium and emerged 2 hours later to a winter wonderland! That night they ended up getting 4-5 inches. It may not sound exciting to most people...but living in GA all of our lives, it was a treat =) We'd planned a romantic dinner out but instead ordered room service and watched the snow fall outside...a sweet, sweet change of plans!
    I also followed and "liked" all of the blogs and pages required for the extra entries!

  54. Hi!! I saw you over at Mandipidy today and thought I'd stop by. Glad I did! I always love a giveaway! My favorite Valentine's memory just might have to be my first Valentine's with my then-boyfriend/now-husband. We went to eat dinner in the town where his grandmother lives and she called and told him he needed to bring me over to meet her. So not only did I get have a delicious dinner with my boyfriend, but I got to meet his sweet grandmother, who sent me home with some yummy homemade candy! :)

  55. I am a follower! My favorite Valentine's day memory was 2 years ago when I went crazy and completely decorated the living room of our apartment for Valentine's Day. It was awesome... and I REALLY want to do it again but I am not feeling that ambitious this year unfortunately :)

    My favorite Valentine's was a super late reservation because the boyfriend always waits until the last minute. We went to a Korean bbq place where you cook at your table. It was so much fun!! Didn't matter what time we were there, just being together and laughing like silly kids was perfect.

    Great giveaway!!

  80. I love this giveaway! I am a follower. My favorite Valentine's Day memory is when my husband and I were dating. He had to work that day and I wouldn't get to see him, so he came by my house before he had to be at work and brought me roses, ballons, and candy. It was so sweet!

  83. Wow - what an amazing giveaway! My favourite valentines day memory was when I got two flower gifts... one from my boyfriend and one from ?. Was starting to get worried, but then the florist came back and said there was a mistake about the colour of the first one so they corrected it with the second. Phew!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. The cuteness - I could just squeal!!

    Obviously I follow your blog, loving the new design, and now desperately desiring cheesecake balls.

    Fave valentines day - I usually work out of town on valentines day - but last year it was a Sunday and I got to go out to eat with my now husband and share laughs and food and time together. An everyday moment that ended up being so special.

  85. Oh my gosh - I have my fingers AND toes crossed!! I never win anything, so we'll see! LOL!

    I'm a new blog follower....and my favorite Valentine's Day memory would be Valentine's 2007 - my daughter, Leila was like three weeks old and dressed in the cutest little heart outfit. My husband, daughter and I took a walk downtown, and had dinner out and she slept through the whole thing! It is a sweet memory to me!

  89. Since I have started following your blog it has pleasantly surprised me! I love it!

    My favorite Valentine's Day memory had to be a few years ago when I was in college and my current boyfriend was not yet my boyfriend and he came to my house and stuck a Mountain Dew duck taped to a row of Hershey Kisses and a card where he drew a picture and wrote me a poem. It was not a romantic poem or anything but since I had already loved him so much it was super exciting that he thought of me enough to get me something. It makes me feel great!

  90. I just found you the other day...and now I am following :)

  91. I follow your blog! My husband & I have never really been big on celebrating Valentine's Day, but one year we did decide to go out to dinner. We got all dressed up, and all the restaurants were full. So, we got take out, and ate at the house, just the two of us. It was actually really great.

    Hummm.. favorite Valentines Memory was probably my first valentines day with my husband (right after we started dating) and we went out with another couple for dinner at this cooking school that opened up for meals. It was supposed to be really good, but the entire meal turned out to be a disaster. It was funny though and we all had a great time and made great memories despite the awful food and experience at the restaurant.

  137. I follow your blog. All throughout highschool, around valentines day, my school sold roses as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity. We’d never know when the roses would be delivered, but one day I’d walk up to my locker and find two beautiful red roses on my locker. One from my nana and grandaddy, and one from my parents. I loved this because it was more than just a romantic holiday tradition, but something my family did for me showing how much I meant to them. Always made me smile!

  140. we rarely celebrate V-day, but on our first married Valentine's Day, my husband woke me up and pulled a pair of diamond earrings out of his nightstand. It was such a sweet surprise and my first + only pair of diamond earrings :)

  144. oh my gosh. best giveaway ever. my fav valentine's memory has to be in college when my roommate/best friend and i had NO plans and were sad about it for .5 seconds until we realized we could have fun on our own. those memories are especially dear to me now that she is about to get married!

  146. My favorite Valentine's memory is my first Valentine's with my no husband. He took me to see Gillian Welch in Asheville, NC. Her voice and songs are so romantic on any given day, but for Valentine's, it was simply magical.

  152. My favorite Valentine memory is the first Valentine's I was dating my now-husband. He cooked me a delicious candlelit meal for the first time, had memory cards written out for me to read from our years of friendship, and gave me a beautiful diamond ring (not THAT ring quite yet, but soon after!). It was romantic, lovely, and a beautiful special time together.
