I'd like to show you a picture of my Valentine's Day roses but my Valentine rarely buys me flowers.

He will always dig the holes for my hydrangea and azalea bushes though.

He doesn't think to buy me a Valentine's Day card but he never forgets to pay the bills.

Although he's not big on buying chocolates, he always saves the last Twizzler in the package for me.

We don't go out to dinner much but The Man never complains about eating leftovers.

Although we don't take cruises or Caribbian vacations, he will travel anywhere I am to fix a flat tire on my car.

My Valentine is a man of few words and though he is not one for flowery speeches, he says, "I love you" every day.

That is what I call romance.

Wishing you the Valentine's Day of your dreams.
