Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Today is the day Hallmark has prepared a selection of pre-approved sentiments to share with your love. Er, I mean, it’s Valentines Day!
Did anyone get any guns nestled in roses?
Hubby and I have an actual date planned for Friday. First one in a long time. *shakes fist at baby* We have a sitter lined up, and we’re going to go watch entertainment that doesn’t involve puppets or toy trains. I love my babies, but it’s going to be nice to spend quality time alone with my husband. He’s my prepper partner and one of my favorite people.
In fact, in a certain light, it could be said that prepping brought us together. I was a recent college grad, looking for a place to grow some veggies. He had a back yard with some abandoned raised beds. I started hanging out with him more, looking to score permission to plant in them. I did end up planting seeds in those beds. More than vegetables grew though.
I hope you do remember to take the time to strengthen the bonds in your life. I don’t care if you pick Valentines Day or Lincolns birthday or a random Tuesday. Make sure the ones you love know it. You never know when the bonds will be tested, and like the rest of your resiliency tools, you should keep the bonds close and strong and in good repair.
Are you a prepper pair? Or do you struggle to balance your prepping against your partner’s disinterest? Any good prepper dating sites? Sound off!

PS – this being a holiday of love, I think Jason and GoneWiththeWind should both say something nice to each other.
