My Most Romantic Valentine

I have so many; it's hard to choose just one. Seriously, I've been taking and ruminating about this 'most romantic Valentine' idea. It's tough. There was a year when I woke up to slightly burnt toast, drunk from a smudge glass of orange juice and some lovely flowers. There was another time when I opened a beautiful heart-shaped chocolate, with a bite from the corner. It's the size of a small baby's teeth. I absolutely love it! There's another time when I get to dress up and eat out and go the movies with my husband. I realized after recalling all these lovely memories that valentines day ideas does not have to be expensive to me romantic and memorable! I must mention my sort-of-romantic and funny valentine. I was in high school. Most of the greeting cards are in English. It's a tradition that a boy will give a girl a card or flower for valentines. I guess I had a secret admirer, but he's not so vigilant. I must give him an A+ for the beautiful card he gave me. It was red, musical, with a picture of a gorgeous bouquet of roses in front and it played Debussy's 'Claire De Lune'. Then I looked at the card closely and closer still. Would you believe it? The card said, With Love to my Grandmother."

This year, for Valentines, I'd like to try something new. I'll make Chocolate Espresso Mousse. After all, valentines is not just for my husband and I, it's for our kids too.
