Wanderings: POE, will you be my valentine?

Saint Valentine's Day. A time when Cupid's bow is aimed at us all, with roses and hearts in the air. Couples embracing under the moonlight, snuggling tightly under their umbrellas, smiling through the rain. I am such a sap for romance!

Did you know... that in Belarus, it is believed that Saint Valentine was so heartbroken from being rejected by his mistress that as a token of his undying love, he took a knife to his chest, ripped out his still-beating heart and sent it to her? How intense!

But back to happier thoughts! To celebrate Valentine's day POE style, I thought it would be a cool idea to showcase some dreamy POE travel shots so we could all escape together on a romantic getaway of our own.

Honestly, you guys are like my other significant other! All the time spent in the forums together, laughing, comforting and supporting each other. All the places I am whisked away to while looking at your photographs. If I am on the computer with you guys, my sweet hubby knows he has competition!

So my POE darlings, I hope you will be mine! Grab the champagne and the chocolates and let's enjoy our mini-getaway together!

Happy Valentine's Day!
