      Date at home is sweet for us. He gives me roses, and I give him a heart shaped tin, of his favorite, dark chocolate covered cherries. We exchange Valentine cards, sweetheart sentiments, then get on our computers. 25 years of Valentine Cards, and we still have every one.

      The couple massage is a great idea. Maybe we could try that some other time.

      You have such wonderful ideas for making Valentine's Day special and you sure are up my alley with the camping trip. Your hot balloon idea is something I wouldn't have thought of but what a memory to create. A massage is always the perfect gift!
