The Evolution of Valentines Day .... Oh how far we have come!

Grade School: Exchange of Valentine's Day cards with classmates, consumption of homemade cupcakes and candy hearts.
Junior High: No more homemade cupcakes, they have been replaced with mini teddy bear, a gumball machine ring, and a heart filled with chocolates.
High School: Lawn mowing and baby sitting jobs have upgraded the gifts to over sized teddy bears hugging chocolates and a handwritten card explaining ever endearing love for one another.
Fast Forward to Now........

This year you might be with the one that you love, friends that you care for or maybe you are going to spend the day getting to know the one you crush for.......regardless, what are you planning that will make your valentine remember this Valentine's Day?
