As I got older, I remember celebrating it with my family. It would fall on our annual ski vacation and my mom would always bring some surprises for us: a red stuffed bear, chocolate, lotion. One year in college she sent me a homemade heart pillow made out of old fabrics that held special memories.
Then, of course, there were the years of the holiday spent with a romantic love. Fraser used to make me an elaborate Valentine's Day dinner: a couple years with flourless chocolate cakes, a year with fondues - one with crab, one with chocolate. I would take a long bath as he would finish the meal and we would bask in each other's company.
