My boyfriend is my valentine. We just had a baby together who turned two months old today. He has far exceeded my expectations of what a dad could be. Our baby was 100% planned and in that I was sure that he would be an amazing dad but little did I know how amazing. I had a really intense 22 hour labor with 4 hours of intense pushing that ended in a c-section. He shed tears for the first time in our 4 1/2 years together at the sight of our beautiful daughter. We named her Cassidy and to say the least she can be a trying baby. She cried a lot in the beginning and he spent nights swaddling her and pacing/bouncing back and forth in our bedroom to soothe her. He changed her diapers, cooked us dinner, cleaned the house and entertained our family in those first days when I was recovering. He works all day, comes home and takes her so I can have breaks. He is lighthearted when she cries and takes it in stride when she screams for hours. He brings a sense of humor to what could be a much more stressful situation with a cranky baby. He gets up in the middle of the night after I've nursed her and changes her diapers. He is 50/50 with everything in our life, most importantly with our daughter. I couldn't ask for a better guy to be with and am so glad I gave him my heart.

By next Valentine's day my Valentine will be my husband. We are getting married this fall and I couldn't be more excited. He makes me feel special every day. I feel like I am winning the husband lottery!

My Valentine is my boyfriend. He currently lives in London and is in his last year of medical school. As far apart as we are, he makes everyday special by sending me a text in the morning wishing me a good day. And every evening before he goes to bed he tells me he'll be dreaming of me. It makes the distance more bearable and makes me love him even more.

My valentine is my 2 1/2 year old son, fondly known as my little "Butternut" since the day he was born - he fills my heart with joy, love and laughter, and simply lights up my life!

My meat-and-potato Valentine is a special sweetie because while he is working hard to make his small grass-fed beef operation a success, he remains an openminded diner at my creatively organic adventurous table. I love to discover new foods and invent delicious recipes, so I need a guinea pig for my cooking hobby! He is willing to put his penchant for plain old meat and potatoes aside and dig in to whatever wild, healthy recipe I dream up. Because I want him to like my cooking, I challenge myself to reinvent comfort food in a nutritious way. We learn a lot from each other. Here's to openminded culinary palettes and special sweeties! Thank you Whole Foods for helping our tastefilled adventures!

I have 2 special valentines. One is of course, my husbaand! We have been through thick and thin, pretty and ugly! He has even trimmed my toe nails for me when I was too pregnant to do so! I love him. And my 2yr old daughter, Bella. I love waking up in morning with a hug, kiss, or a foot next to my face! I am so lucky to have them in my life =)

My valentine is so sweet - he helps me cook by chopping up all the things I can't and opening (almost) all the jars!

I have two Valentines: my dog (who can't eat this delightful food), and my roommate. The latter is my best friend for life-- we watch bad tv together, cook together, travel together. We'd never be together romantically (turns out we both like guys), but with someone who knows you that well, it doesn't even really matter.

My valentine this year is my Nonno (Grandpa). He gives so much love to all his grandkids and I feel it in every one of our conversations. I am so thankful for him everyday!

What makes my Valentine special? She's my mom! Now that I am a mom myself, I know how easy it is to get wrapped up in taking care of the kids first, the hubby second, the house third, and yourself...well never! Or at least never enough...I know there is mother's day to celebrate how "wonderful mom's are" - but I think it would be nice to let your mother know that she is appreciated at other unexpected times! Valentine Day's is a great time to remind her how special she is and how much she's means to you and how you recognize all the sacrifices she has made have not gone unnoticed! Think out of the box, ask your mom that important question this year - I know I am going too; "Mom, will you be my Valentine?"- no mother could resist that offer!!

Good friends and loved ones are commonly taken for granted until a crisis-health, financial or security. Ours was health this year, so I am especially humbled, grateful & blessed to be able to say "we survived & are on a roll for improved health and daily appreciation!". Happy Valentine's, John! You made it! Love, Suzanne

My valentine is my boyfriend who has been making a great effort to follow a healthy lifestyle. He will try all the recipes I make, even though some seem "too healthy" and he says he likes them, whether he is lying I don't know. He knows that being healthy is important to me so he does his best to be healthy himself and to encourage me.

Valentine's Day is a day for me to reflect on the love between my husband and I. We do not spend many special days together because my husband is active duty in the US Army. We are currently on our fourth deployment in 6 years and we miss out on spending holidays with each other.We have only spent 2 Valentines's Days together in our relationship. On this day I will take out our wedding album and watch our wedding video and think about our special day. Its a day for me to remember how strong our love is even know we are so far apart. Our daughter, who is 4, will send daddy a special card that she made for him and we send it off to Afghanistan with love.

My husband is unique. My favorite thing about him is his witty way of making me laugh.

My husband/valentine is special because of all those little things he does every day. (Like right now, he ran to WFM to get me some avocados while I catch up on email and things.)

My valentine is my boyfriend of 3 years. He was the first person to start my healthy eating habits and shop at Whole Foods. I am not a fan of chocolate and don't make many desserts containing the ingredient. This would be the perfect gift for him - organic+chocolate! -Cara

My Valentine is my husband, and he's my partner and best friend. He's funny, super smart, and a terrific dad. From our first date 20 years ago this coming Feb 15, it's been one long, interesting conversation between us that has never gotten boring. We celebrate our love on Feb 15th, usually with a special dinner I make, because restaurant chefs are way too exhausted to cook well that day. And oh, he's also my live-in tech support. Don't know what I'd do without him!

My Valentine is my love, my husband! Though he calls me "sweetie" because of my extremely sweet tooth, he is the best chocolate I've ever dreamt about!

She is the most trustworthy and supportive person I know. I can tell her anything and she's always there for me. She loves me for my good and my bad.

My husband and 3 kids are my valentines. We have a saying that we always say to each other, "I love you more than you love me" and we go back and forth, "No, I love you the mostest"!
