Valentine's Cards That Won't Make You Barf

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

I remember standing in the card aisle at Publix (a grocery store in the South) when I was in high school picking out card after card and just cracking up. I'm not sure whether it's my humor or the card industry that has changed, but nowadays I have a hard time finding good cards. They're either not funny or so sappy that they seem almost insincere.

Now, no one who knows my wife and I can claim that we don't have a sappy side, but it's a quirky sappy side. It's a sappy side that says "Hey, I'm a bit of a wack job, but you are too. Let's make out."

So I've turned to Etsy for my card-buying needs. It never disappoints. There's always a card on there that says exactly what I've been wanting to say, like this.

My wife and I tend to be pretty low-key on Valentine's Day. No fancy dinners out for us. But I do like to use the opportunity for a little reminder of how much I love her - definitely more than blogs (by a hair).

How about you? Is Valentine's Day a big one?

Oh, and don't forget the non-romantic loves in your life. Everyone is happy about mail - send a Valentine to your mom, your dad, your best friend, that kid you never asked out in middle school (okay, maybe not that one).

p.s. Just in case you are looking for a little something sappy, here you go.
