Making My Own Valentine's Day Cards
Valentine's Day is just around the corner... in fact, it's only two days away, gentlemen. So if you're gonna do something sweet for your sweetie, you need to get your ass in gear NOW. We ladies have been done for several days now.
And don't think that the pathetic, crinkled, leftover card, the mismatched, too-large envelope and the Whitman's Sampler you're gonna pick up at Walgreens on your way home from work Thursday is gonna pass muster.
It's almost like I'm psychic, isn't it?
Well never fear, Burbanmom's gotcha covered. Here's what you do: Grab some paper and a pen and write her a love letter. Sound simple? It is. And your [wife/girlfriend/mistress/sig ot/life partner/stalking victim] will treasure it more than any Hallmark you could ever purchase.
You don't have to be a poet, either. Just keep it simple, honest and from the heart. Tell her how beautiful she is, tell her how smart she is, tell her how having her in your life makes you happier than you ever thought possible. But most of all, tell her that you love her more every day.
If all that doesn't work, tell her you saved $4.95 on a card. That's sure to impress her.
PS... yes, that's the actual card I made for hubby for Valentine's Day. Eat your heart out, Vera. ;-)
