Captivating Valentine Inspiration Board

When I was in elementary school my parents started a tradition that followed through to high school, they had flowers delivered to me every Valentine's Day. I remember waiting in anticipation, as I went to my classes, to hear that a delivery was waiting for me in the school office. The hope of what was to come was great: what kind of flower would it be, what color, would there be a balloon (or many balloons), and what would the card say. That tradition built a fond love of Valentine's Day which, of course, was later transferred to my husband.
 Valentine's Day is a day for dreamers, for the romantic, and for those who love to love.
