Mr. Zoom and I aren’t big on exchanging Valentie’s gifts. I usually make a yummy steak and blue cheese wedge salad for dinner and we light some candles and have a few drinks at home. We don’t got out for dinner very often, and staying in on Valentine’s Day has always been fun and silly and perfect for us.
Last year when planning our at- home date we both agreed, as we always do, that we wouldn’t exchange gifts or flowers or chocolates or ANYTHING. Naturally, I ran straight to Target and picked out three Valentines cards for Mr. Zoom; one from me, one from Big Zoom, and one from Little Zoom.
When Love Day rolled around, I had three perfectly crimson cards lined up, signed and sealed for Mr. Zoom to open when he arrived home from work. He opened his cards, somewhat sheepishly, and when he’d finished reading the sweet sentiments I’d scribbled inside, he admitted that he had no card for me. We weren’t after all, exchanging anything.
We both learned a couple of things that evening. Exchanging nothing, in literal terms means, exchanging nothing. And, cards are required on special occasions. Mr. Zoom has been reminded, on several occasions about the card thing this year.
So in an effort to make merry this Valentine’s Day I’ve created three FREE printable Valentine’s cards for you. No need to run to Target. No need to make your ahem, wife, cry hysterically and overreact. Just print one of these out and deliver with a smile. You’re welcome.
