I actually like all the unnecessary pink and cute sappy fluff surrounding Valentines Day... The only beef I have with it is that it seems designed specifically to make single folks feel like losers. :neglected:
I make my own Valentine cards (usually purple or orange) and give them to my wife throughout the year. My wife also collects porcelian figurines, so I get her a box of figurines instead of candy (ooooh, gross). Try that with your fiancee...a box of what does he like [besides you, of course]? Wait, wait, I got it...a box of YOU. Give him a box with a card in it explaining when where and how the next romantic down time will be spent.
Let me know if it works out, but only if you want to.
And, one last thing, if I may. I'm intrigued by your site name. What is 'thundercake'?
Awww... I'm so glad you feel that way about valentines and your anniversary. Commercialism might be the death of us - forget consumerism. Giving into people trying to sell us stuff - not the people who sell us the stuff. Coraline was good, then?
