Valentine’s Day

13 Feb

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow.

i am not a big fan of Valentine’s Day.  It’s a frigging Hallmark holiday, created {IMO} to sell cards and candy and flowers, with jacked up prices on flowers that are ridiculous.

And yet, it’s one of those holidays {like Mother’s Day} that if you ignore it, you feel bad.

When i was married we had little traditions we developed quickly so  we didn’t have to get too creative.   My first husband did flowers, which i do like a lot.  i did candy, which He loved, and we went out to dinner.  

My second husband always gave me some piece of jewelry with a heart in the design.  i’d give him a little series of small gifts of things he liked ~ candy, a book, tickets to a show, whatever.  

When i’m not in a relationship, i give my friends and family little candies or cards and try to content myself with that.  {Well, i do that some when i’m a relationship too, but it’s not the whole focus, right?}

If i’m in a new relationship, that’s the trickiest.  You don’t know what to expect, or what to give, or anything.  i kind of hate it.


So i got Sir a book ~ don’t tell HIm ~ it’s some previously unpublished stories by His favorite author, and i’m hoping He hasn’t already read it.  i’m hoping to come up with something else creative before tomorrow, but am not sure that’s going to happen.  i couldn’t find a card i liked so i’ll have to make one.  

My Sir is a Master of different and unique gifts.  They are often symbolic gifts rather than hands on material things, which i think will make life more interesting.

So for Valentine’s Day, He’s created a myth for me.  A legend.  And written a story about it.

The myth involves a karada, the japanese rope dress,

and a Dom on a quest ~ a little bit like Cinderella ~ but He seeks the one who fits the karada.  So He sends His man out to all the villages, looking for the submissive woman it fits… and all the women line up to try it on…

Sir’s giving me the story, which He’s already written, but the story is not the gift.  The legend that the story’s based on, the legend He created for me, is the gift.

How could i not love this man?

    We’ve never celebrated Valentine’s day. It did take my husband a few years to believe i meant it when i said i didn’t care to – and that i wasn’t playing some kind of a test or game with him. His friends think he’s lucky in this regard; he tells them it means he has to be nice to me every day, not just this one. I like what you talk about doing with your Sir – small but very significant and creative things for each other. What a great way to deepen the way you know someone.

      i’m impressed with your ability to say that and mean it. i’ve tried that before but apparently i’m too shallow to really pull that off {laughing…} cause when the day comes, i get all blues’ed out.

      So i think it’s very cool that you can do it and mean it.

    He’s lovable
    but more important
    he values what you value

    which makes you guys fit well

      Laughing… are you telling me He wouldn’t be every submissive woman’s dream Sir?????

      And isn’t that a good thing? i’d hate to have to fight some girl for HIm… {still laughing…}

      We do fit, don’t we? How magical is that?

    We really are sisters.

    i feel the *exact* same way about Valentines. Often, i gift M with little trinkets (usually hearts, lol) that i find here and there, no holiday about it. My wife, who understands my loathing of the “day”…as we indoctrinate our kids to “celebrate” the day…calls me a “romantic fool”…of course meant sarcastically.

    The thing is, i am a romantic. Just not the Hallmark version, that’s all.

    As for your Sir’s gift to you? That, my sweet sister, is priceless. 🙂

      Yes. Sisters, no doubt.

    It’s wondeful to hear you sound so happy. I am sure you will come up with something creative. Homemade cards are often my favorite.
