Happy Valentine’s Day to all lovers of the world! Have a great romantic day! :-)
My gift to you is a bouquet of roses:
Rose is one of the most popular flower and one of the most powerful symbol of Valentine’s Day. Since time immemorial rose flower has been a favorite of poets and romantics at heart. For them, the lovely rose stand for beauty, passion and love.
There is an interesting story behind the legend of Valentine’s Day Rose. It is said that once a beautiful maiden by the name of Rodanthe was pursued by a number of impassioned suitors. In their desperate pursuit the lovers broke the doors of Rodanthe’s house. This enraged goddess Diana. She turned Rodanthe into a flower and her suitors into thorns.
According to a popular legend in Rome once Cupid was carrying a vase of sweet nectar to the Gods on Mount Olympus and some nectar spilled on the ground. From the spot where the nectar fell emerged the beautiful Rose flower.
An interesting point to notice is that if the letters of the word ‘rose’ are rearranged, it comes out to Eros – the God of Love. Red roses are also considered to be a symbol of love and passion and the favorite flower of Venus – the Goddess of Love.
Just see here how Terri Moore prepared a gorgeous one:

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!! HAPPY HEART DAY!!!
A variety of interesting Valentine’s Day traditions developed over time.
For example, hundreds of years ago in England, children dressed up as adults on Valentine’s Day and went singing holiday verses from door to door.
In Wales, wooden love spoons, carved with key, keyhole and heart designs, were given as gifts.
The gift of flowers on Valentine’s Day probably dates to the early 1700s when Charles II of Sweden brought the Persian poetical art called ”the language of flowers” to Europe.
The rose, representing love, is probably the only flower with a meaning that is universally understood. The red rose remains the most popular flower bought by men in the United States for their sweethearts.

What is love?
There isn’t one true definition of Love.
Love is a combination of feelings torward another person.
Love is not wanting to go anywhere without someone.
Love is when you give your attention, your time, and your focus to someone without needing anything in return.
Love is when we want someone to feel good in all ways, physically, mentally and emotionally.
Love is when you feel like you’re one in the same with the person you love. You lose all your inhibitions, and don’t have a care in the world as long as you’re with the one you love.
Love is a deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.

Did you know that…
Around 12th Century people were not aware the function of heart was to circulate blood inside the human body.
What they knew was that heart begins to beat faster when a person is upset or excited. They, therefore, derived that heart was the seat of emotions and feelings.
Poets too eulogized the role of heart in feelings of love and romance and over the years this make believe connection between heart and love became deep seated in the minds of people.
Today, even though it has been scientifically proved that emotions come from the brain, heart remains a powerful symbol of love and Valentine’s Day.
Make a unique gift for your sweet Valentine this year.

The heart is the quintessential symbol for love during Valentine’s. It also symbolizes the significance of giving your heart to someone. A heart being pierced by Cupid’s arrow means when someone gives their heart, they always run the risk of being rejected or hurt in the end.
Cupid is a small mischieveous angel that has his roots in Roman mythology. Cupid was the son of Venus — the Roman goddess of love. It is said that anyone hit by Cupid’s arrow did not die, but rather fell in love.
This homemade heart box with Cupid, rose, feathers, pearls and ribbons is a pretty and elegant Valentine gift of its own indeed.
