    ...who else doesn't???

    We celebrate Trisha and Danny Day.

    We love each other all year long so we don't do Valentine's Day but in order to follow along with traditon we go out the day after Valentine's (or the day before) to celebrate the love we share all year...for the rest of our lives.

    Hey Trisha - good for you. That's our wedding anniversary, and it's tax season for us, so we don't do "anything" either. Just another day. We're tired at the end of the day, but we do stress our love for one another in other small ways, which are more important then anything you can buy.[​IMG]

    We do but low key. We make a pizza from scratch, forming the crust into a heart shape and spell our initials with strips of pepper. We've been doing that for 20 Valentine's Days now!

    We really don't do anything either. Sometimes we do dinner a couple days later. This year I want a baby! [​IMG]

    Good luck with the baby thing. At 40, and two kids almost 12 and 10, i am waaaay past that, but I love love love being a mom.

    As for V-day, no we don't do anything. We don't need a holiday to let each other know we love each other. we don't go nuts for Christmas, easter or birthdays either. the kids get a few gifts, but as for me and hubby, --nada. and seriously--that's the way we want it. I;m not a girly girl--don't like jewellery and such, and if you buy me a flower--it better be one i can plant in the garden. Not much into commercialism.......

    That's sooooooo cool!!!

    We don't really do anything either, My birthday is just seven days later, so I'd rather celebrate that. And like ya'll, we show our love all year long- no need to fall into the hype on one day of the year.​
