  1. My husband has always been in food service, so we didn’t have many Valentine’s Days together; however, the day after is the anniversary of our first date… 31 years ago! So my favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is the day after!

  2. I love all the hearts and lace and pretty things but even more I love that it is a chance to teach the students to share love with everyone.

  3. I love that it is a simple holiday, passing our Valentines, I don’t have a man in my life, but I get a lot of love from my students that day!
