Valentine's Day Party - Romance is in the Air!!

When love is not madness, it is not love. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

Many are the starrs I see, but in my eye no starr like thee. ~English saying used on poesy rings

Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction.~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. ~Albert Einstein
Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine! ~Thomas Hood
I claim there ain't Another Saint As great as Valentine. ~Ogden Nash
Must, bid the Morn awake!
Sad Winter now declines,
Each bird doth choose a mate;
This day's Saint Valentine's.
For that good bishop's sake
Get up and let us see
What beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.
 ~Michael Drayton
“Be My Valentine”…

what i love the most about valentine's day are some of the extremely creative thing people come up with to express their love for one another (like proposing while thousands of feet in the air with only a parachute).

I love watching couples exchange gifts. Just by people watching, you can see how much they love each other and the crazy lengths they go to just so the other person knows they're loved.
