Are You Ready for Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! This year, my husband and I are going to try something a little different. Instead of focusing just on one day, we're going to spread out the love. For the whole week before Valentine's, we're going to write a love note to each other every day. (I wanted to do it for two weeks, but I wasn't organized to start the beginning of February, so for this year, one week will be our goal.)

I like the idea of spending more time on each other. In today's world, it's so easy to get distracted by the Internet, TV, and little gadgets and forget that people are what make the world such a great place. It will be nice to put a little more emphasis on the romantic side and go back to those courting days (while still happily married!).

Another benefit I see in trying this is that Valentine's Day this year is in Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday (February 13). I usually give up sweets for Lent (it is not easy, but that's part of the point of it!), so I won't be eating any Valentine's chocolates on February 14. February 12--that's another story!

I bet some of you have some neat Valentine's traditions. I'd love to hear about them!
