Love takes Patience

As proven by this art piece made entirely out of matchsticks by artist Pei-San Ng.
It's Valentines Day.  What are you doing to celebrate? Do you exchange cards? Go out to dinner? Get flowers?

The Husband and I are not  into calendars or Hallmark telling us when and how to show our love so we started an ironic tradition a few years back.  For Valentines day we give each other the gift of "space".  A day where you can go off an do whatever you want to do (within the limits of the law).   Last year The Husband went camping and I went out to dinner with the girls.  This year I think he is going to take a beer brewing class and I will take a dance class.  

For Valentines day we will be appreciating ourselves so that  for the other days of the year we can love and appreciate each other.
