Sealed with L-O-V-E. I started a new family tradition last year. While visiting family in Iowa, I heard about this wonderful idea featured on the news. The post office in the small town of Valentine, Nebraska will stamp your Valentines with a special heart postmark. I placed all of my Valentine cards, stamped and addressed in a larger envelope and sent them off to the post office in Valentine, NE. My family members each received their hand-cancelled, sealed with love Valentine. Doing a search on the USPS website, I found that 11 other romantically named cities also offer this service. Listen to the names of these: Bliss, NY, Heart Butte, MT, Juliette, GA, Loveland, CO, Loveville, MD, Loving, MN, Romance, AR, Romeo, MI, Sugar City, CO, Valentine, TX and Valentines, VA. Surprise your loved ones with their Valentines this year.

What a wonderful idea! I don't feel organized enough to do it this year, but I will surely keep it in mind for next year. Thanks!

I knew you could do this at Christmas (North Pole, etc.) but never thought about Valentine's Day postmarks. How wonderfully clever!
