Valentine's Day Gift Hop

Welcome to my contribution to the Valentine's Day Gift Hop!!!! 
 
 
I have a love/hate relationship with Valentine's Day. Part of me believes to my very core that the holiday is nothing more than an opportunity for the flower and chocolate industry to get a noticable bump in their profits. The girlie girl deep down inside me desperately needs a bouquet of flowers on her desk at work to brag about. I will only be five weeks into a relationship come V-Day. And he's going out of town a few days prior (already verbalised his relief that he dodged the Valentine's Day bullet).
 
So here's my position. I found a guy who treats me like a princess every day. I don't need flowers or a Be My Valentine card to complete me. But I sure want a token of affection on the big day. Yes I do. Bigger is better.
 
What's your take on Valentine's Day? Love it? Hate it? Take it or leave it?
 
Leave me a comment with your email address and I will enter you in a drawing for an e-copy of Silk Stalkings.
 


 
Blurb

Yancey Peters, a researcher at the local newspaper, is on a mission to beef up her sexual resume. Men in her past have told her she is the kind of woman you marry, not the kind you fool around with. Problem is none of the men she’s dated are ready to settle down. Yancey decides to transform herself from a plain Jane to a hot chick and embark on a sexual exploration phase of her own before settling down.
     Diego Ramos, a tow truck driver, is through with reckless women who wear short skirts, sexy silk stockings and high heels. Until he meets Yancey, that is. He thought he was ready to settle down, find a wholesome wife and start a family. Yancey makes him realize he might have one more carefree fling in him after all.
     Unfortunately, Yancey has caught the eye of another admirer who wants more than she’s willing to give.

  4. I'm w/Cindi, being single every year kind of makes V-day severely overrated lol

  5. I hear ya. And sometimes being a couple on V-day leaves much to be desired. I got a doggy gate for my station wagon one year.

  8. i do like valentine's day, although at the same time I think that love and friendship should be celebrated the whole year. But it's a fun day.

  22. We don't celebrate V-Day. Yeah sure I would love a big bouquet of my favorite flowers but I get them on my birthday & our anniversary or random days he just felt like it. I would much rather have them on a day that he doesn't feel obligated to get them at damn triple the price. So we stay in make dinner together with our kids then cuddle up for a movie. Much better than spending a bunch of money for some flowers that are gonna die in a week anyway. :)

  31. I'm not big into valentine's day in general... even tho hubby did have a WONDERFUL unexpected surprise for me this year... normally if we do anything ... it's just dinner and a movie. I don't think you need one special day to show your love... that should be done all year long :) jjo7796 at hotmail dot com
