Valentine's Day isn't all that bad

I haven't been all that lucky in love, plus as a Jew, celebrating a holiday named after a SAINT seems a little odd to me. I've certainly never been as anti-Valentine's as Jack but...Valentine's Day in the past has usually been no different than any other day. Until this year...

LO's teacher invited all the parents to school to surprise the kids with a party. When PHD and I showed up at LO's class, she ran to him and hugged him. Here is an idea of how happy she was to see him:


LO had a surprise for me too. She made me this heart:

(Forgive me for the bad cell phone picture.)

The heart she made for PHD said, "handsome, kind, praying, working, loving, a person who is cute, friend". She actually wrote the first word as "hamsom" which I thought was funny since she is the kosher police. (Oh and I thought it was interesting that she had written "praying" for both of us...guess she is REALLY used to seeing us daven!)

After the party I went back to work and it was basically an uneventful day although everytime I talked to PHD on the phone or via Skype, I could tell he was up to something but he wouldn't reveal anything.

We went to PHD's for dinner and when we arrived, the table was set beautifully with rose petals, cards and gifts for me and LO. He had spent much of the day decorating and making dinner. It was lovely, complete with a salad with vegetables that PHD had carved into little hearts. Dinner was tilapia with lemon sauce and capers followed by a dessert of chocolate mousse a la PHD. (Two of my very favorites that he makes!)

And here's a glimpse of what happened next....

(ed. note: Don't worry, I haven't thrown tzniut out the window - this is not an actual picture of me, I found it on Google somewhere. I WISH I were as thin as this woman and that I actually had a bathtub this large!)

Yes - I believe this one is a "keeper". (And LO agrees.)

I'm confused. Is this the same guy that Lo walked up to in shul and asked if he liked Asian women? If so, how long ago was that...sounds like things are moving right along. That's pretty great...oh, and a lovely Valentine you had!

I am happy for you, even though you are so misguided about Valentine's Day. ;)

Geez that's just so sweet, and so's the pic too. LO looks just so happy. And from what we can see PHD seems like a fine looking fella too! Cheers & Much Luck in 'Vagas! 'VJ'
PS: (That's about the best V-Day story I've seen in a while on the Net!)
