Happy Valentine's Day!!

So Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!

My day has started off with a beautiful bouquet of pink roses (and a card to match!) from my DH. Who also brought me a bag full of Dark chocolate (yum!) and Heath bars (my favorite)!!!

So Joe is planning to take me out tonight and we have changed our plans slightly. Instead of staying downtown on the penninsula we are planning to go to Summerville for dinner and a movie.

~*~*~*~*~* A History of St. Valentine's Day~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

St. Valentine of Rome was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. At that time, Emperor Claudius II decided that single ment made better soldiers than married men (obviously he hasn't been on one of the bases around here ;), so he outlawed marriage for young couples. Realizing the injustice of this law, Valentine secretly married couples. As soon as news about Valentine got ot Claudius, Valentine was thrown in jail and sentenced to death. Many asked Claudius to free Valentine, but he refused. He locked him up, and he died on February 14, 270. Legend says that St. Valentine left a farewell note to the jailer's daughter who had become his friend and signed it "From your Valentine."

♥ Feel the Love. Share the Love. ♥
