Valentines Day makes me miss my dad. Without fail, every year my dad would give my sister and me a box of chocolates from a local candy shoppe in town and a vase of fake flowers. He would say to us that he always buys fake flowers as they last forever and real flowers die. He was always thinking :)
I have to say, being that Valentine's Day is a Hallmark Holiday geared towards couples, I had quite a lovely time with Tom.
