The most important thing for me on Valentines Day is coming up with some sort of surprise. It doesn’t need to be expensive just cool and thoughtful. Last year I tied a large red balloon to a box and made the string so long that Paul could see it from his second story office. I called him and told him to look outside–and all his coworkers gathered around the window to watch while he went down to get the box. I filled the box with all of his favorite things.
