I have the best memories of Valentine’s Day growing up. It was because my mom always left my siblings and I a personalized Valentine’s Day card at our breakfast spot.

When I woke up, there would be a special declaration of love form her and my dad. It taught me that love doesn’t have to come from a man- and it was probably one of the most powerful lessons in feminism my mom ever taught me.

I want to carry that tradition on with my girls just like my mom did for me. Now that we have readers in the house, I am also carrying on another Colorado Valentine’s Day tradition of sending a card through Loveland (also known as the Sweetheart City) to have it stamped with a special stamp and poem before it arrives in the mailbox.

In this post, I’ll share with you exactly how to use the Loveland re-mailing program to send a unique and beautifully stamped Valentine to your loved one!

It’s also a town that takes Valentine’s Day very seriously- each year that unveil a new Valentine’s Day poem that will be stamped on thousand of cards sent through the area. Here’s a quick video about the tradition:

2. Address the envelope as you would a normal letter. 

3. Get a larger envelope the Valentine will go inside of. In my case, I usually send a bunch of these all at once in the same larger envelope. I just bought an envelope at the post office.
