You either look forward to the day or you absolutely abhor the existence of it. Me? I cannot eat chocolates and am not much of a candy fan anyway; popcorn is my Achilles heel especially the kind from Chicago. Flowers and cards are nice too but no dinner out on this day. I’ve gotten past eating out as being special for this day, it’s always too freaking crowded so we will be enjoying dinner at home maybe even by candlelight.
Roses are the usual flower given on this day with red being the leader of the pack. While I think red roses are lovely, I’ve always been a fan of pink, orange, yellow and especially lilac roses. So my gift to you for today is this lovely pink blush hybrid tea rose – Tiffany.
(Update: This post was finished and scheduled before things went terribly awry. There probably won’t be any romantic dinner – unless hot soup qualifies – because DH has come down with the flu and I’m doing my best not to share this with him.)
Hope you get better soon!
Hold up… you can’t eat chocolate? 😮
A candlelit dinner from the comfort of your home sounds divine! I’ve given up eating out on Valentine’s Day, too. Being squished like a sardine is not fun!
Beautiful image, my friend. And happy LOVE day 💕
Thank you, luv. And no I cannot eat chocolate or nuts or strawberries…all the things that stand for this day. Instead this year (besides a sick DH) I got shoes with the red soles – hot cha cha!
Oooo, check you! Hot cha cha. Wish I had me a pair of red soles. I can only afford those of the non-designer variety *sob sob*
Hope hubby gets well soon and you guys have a lovely evening together 😍
Ps; I’m guessing you’re allergic to those things? I feel for ya! 😞
Eh…Allergies is as allergies does! You either learn to live with them or spend a lot of time in the ER. My weakness is popcorn and Key Lime pie 🙂
That must be tough, but yet, better to go without than being at the A+E *shudder*
Actually I don’t miss any of it so it works out in the end.
I suppose you get used to it after a while. You’re probably healthier for it, too! I’m a sucker for anything sweet! I just can’t help myself
Oh I make up for it by eating other things that aren’t as healthy for me like hot bread with butter and honey….
Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m sorry DH isn’t feeling well. 😦 Ah, Garrett’s Popcorn!! Cher xo
Thanks and Happy Valentine’s Day to you too! Yanno a tine of Garrett’s would cure me (notice I said ME) 🙂
*LOL* I did indeed my dear! 😉
I need some STAT! It’s been too long since I last embraced that crunch.
aaww I hope that your DH gets to feeling better. But since he is down, I’ll happily fill in for him. Will you be my Valenpig beautiful? XOXO – Bacon
Who can turn down such an offer! 🙂
Happy valentines day!
And to you too 🙂
I love all roses and this is one pretty pink. Hope DH feels better soon and that he’ll refrain from sharing.
Thanks! I’m tired and a slight cough but that could be from spraying all the Lysol 🙂
Ya know, alcohol kills germs!!! Lots and lots of alcohol.
Oh how I like the way you think!
Happy Valentine’s Day but more importantly – I am wishing hubby a speedy recovery and hope that he is feeling better soon!
Thank you, he is still dragging but improving. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your dear hubby too!
And a happy Valentines Day to you too ❤
Get well soon, DH! ❤
