I mailed my children's Valentines yesterday. This year I sent them to Loving, New Mexico for Valentine cancellations. Each year, several romantic named cities and towns offer special cancellations during a few short weeks in February. I started this tradition a few years ago. We've received cancellations from Valentine, NE, Loveland, CO and this year we will receive one from Loving, NM. The post offices of Juliette, GA, Bliss, NY, Romance, AR, Heart Butte, MT, Loveville, MD, Romeo, MI, Sugar City, CO, Valentine, TX and Valentine, VA also offer this service. Remember to stamp and address your Valentines just as if you were dropping them in a mail box to mail. Instead you place them in a larger envelope with the proper postage and mail them to the head postmaster for their special cancellation.

What a great idea! I knew you could do this for Christmas cards but did not know it's possible with Valentine cards, too.

Hi Cindy,

I hope that everything has gone well, and that you're doing ok today. Certainly, I will be keeping you in my thoughts,and wishing you a speedy recovery.

I love the idea of doing this. Maybe next year, I'll be a little more organized and actually finish my valentines in time to send them off a little earlier.

Take care.
