“Hey Babe, let’s not do Valentine’s Day this year.
Don’t let your buddies convince you I mean otherwise.
This is not a trap.
I say what I mean and I mean what I say.
Let’s not do Valentine’s Day.
I don’t want a fancy floral arrangement delivered to me on February 14th.
But I do love grocery store flowers that you pick up on your way home from work when it’s really been a Monday.
I don’t want you to make reservations at a fancy restaurant where we will eat elbow to elbow with a hundred other couples celebrating the same thing.
But I do love it when you grill steaks, eat with me on the patio and help me do the dishes when we’re done.
I don’t want a box of assorted chocolates.
But I love nothing more than sharing the last piece of chocolate cake with you after our kiddo goes to bed.
I don’t want a giant teddy bear.
But I sure do love to snuggle up and watch home improvement shows with you on Saturday mornings.
I don’t want a $7.00 card with flowery words of love and affection.
But those texts you send in the middle of the day just to say you love me are pretty much my favorite.
I don’t want a February 14th fuss, but I really love being you and me.
So, let’s not make a thing of Valentine’s Day.
Let’s just keep loving each other every day of the year.”
