Gifts are secondary. Love is the most important thing. But gifts are nice...

I love Valentine's Day not just for the gifts and flowers and candy, but it is a day when you unabashedly declare your love for somebody, even if you have been with your loved one for a long time, you will feel the love you have for each other renewed and strengthened. It's a day for promises for the future. I know it somehow has become sort of a cliche, in a lot of people's minds, for guys to propose on Valentine's Day, but I still think it's incredibly romantic and sweet. I guess I'm not jaded. And I hope I will never be. I really encourage the self-proclaimed non-romantics (although I don't believe it when people say they are not romantic, everybody needs romance in their life) to confess and profess their love to their loved one with reckless abandon. That in itself is a precious gift. Other gifts are just icing on the cake. It's always so nice to see the twinkle in their eyes when they open the gift box, right?
