Happy Valentine's Day!!


Our Love is like a chocolate-covered pretzel
Our souls are not twisted, more like entwined.
Your love to me is most precious, and mine for you endless,
Sweet pastry, dipped in dark sweetness,
Comforting and delectable, you are my love-snack.
You're the best part of my day, the highlight of my night
And three years later I can't imagine life without you
Not because I've lost myself.
You are the rock which pushes me up the hill
Your happiness is my vocation, its value without recession.
Each day I delightfully crunch on the fortune that we found each other
and I always want another.
Sorry, babe, I couldn't resist)


Peanut Butter

You are the cheese on my pizza . . . warm, mushy delight.


My Girls Spec K / and Aaaaaaminah!

You guys drive my soul and my heart. My goal is to be there for you . . . to at least equal to how much I love you!


Harm City Roller Derby

I can't skate around the issue anymore, you
boys have the key to my heart.

Georgia O'Kweefe


Happy Valentines Day! I'm so thankful that God brought you into my life. Just when I thought that my happy days were over, you came and put a smile back on my face. And I appreciate you for that, Big Daddy!

Erin Nelson

Special K(K)

I'm so sorry I was such an ass for so long, how could I have been so blind to everything that was you?
I'm an evolving man and things are getting better and brighter every day. All that's really missing is you.
I'll do anything I can to make you happy but you know I'd rather have you in my bed than on top of it! Let's grow old together. . . .


Tara Munch

Happy V-Day sweetie! Nothing makes me happier than you!


Mr. Mahmood

Happy Valentine's Day, Z!
Even before you led me to the top of the Eiffel I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you.
Thank you for showing me things people wouldn't believe . . . e.g. attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, C-beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate, the sunset in Oia, etc.

Mrs. Mahmood

I can't believe this is our third V-Day together. You mean the world to me and I couldn't imagine it any other way. Can't wait to celebrate on Sunday!

Love means never having to say it, but you better send a love ad into the City Paper, or you're sleeping on the couch.

Big Sexy

My Son Derek

I love you. Happy Valentine's Day.

Mommy Renee

My Father, James Thomas Brown

Happy Valentine's Day and happy 80th birthday. You're the greatest.


Momma Brown

Happy Valentine's Day. I love you.



To the most wonderful person I know. Happy Valentine's Day, darlin'! :-)


You have nice legs, beautiful eyes, and delicious earlobes.
I love that you tickle me, just because you love to watch me laugh.
I was nervous we weren't going to make it, going to give up.
But I know that we are meant to be, in love.
We've been through a lot, and come out stronger and more centered on the other side.
I am so lucky you are mine . . . my world entire.

Patricia Parris, The Third.

Hi honey!! I know you have been just a little down lately and I wish I could be there for you and didn't live so very far away. I hope this brings a little smile to your day. You mean so very much to me and 18 years of friendship is a LOT to be celebrated. Poor Toledo, has two neglectful mothers who can't even remember what year he was born in. I miss hanging out everyday, driving through the other Reisterstown Taco Bell, and McDonalds asking for waters, but getting free food. Getting lost in the city for hours trying to find Charm City Skate Shop. Making sacrifices to increase our odds. <3 You are the sun in the sky, the jiggy to my toaster, the achoo to my sneeze, the bright to my eyes, the fraggle to my rock, the donkey to my kong, the mud to my pie, the personal pussy to my party, the 613 to my 631. I love youuuuuuuu! BFFAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAEAE.



Azhriaz V.,

I will love you forever.



I have not forgotten or forsaken my love for you on this Valentine's Day, so honey, this is the best I can offer. I love you baby, and may this letter bring you a smile today. It will me.


My B.F.F

Its been a long time since we have talked. I just want you to know that I meant it when I said I loved you. I still do. I wish there were different circumstances. You know before anything I am your friend so please call on me he you need anything, even if it is just to talk. I love you B.F.F.

B.F.F forever

Dear Baby,
With you by my side I know we'll survive.
You are amazing.
All my love to you on this Valentines Day,
Love always,
ME and the Bugs



I love you. Now, bring me that leash.


ruth head

Have a great one!! And more!!


to my sweetheart

Wake up in the morning to the sound of you breathing
I know I don't want to wake you up, so I leave you sleeping
I watch your lips moving and I wonder what you're dreaming;
I love you in the morning before you've had any caffeine
when you're still half asleep and you're something in between
a human and a bear so, feel free to bite me;
I spend all day with the kids, you spend all night on the ambulance
we traded in our time for the paper we need to live
You'll have dinner ready for me when I get home;
pizza and a salad;
I love you in the evening when our muscles are sore
and we massage each other by candle light on the floor
we look into each other's eyes like, we've never seen them before;
winter's coming on and we'll keep each other warm


Let's make sweet love again; buy us a bigger dick!


Just loving you. Looking forward to many more years of stinks, snugs, and small ones. Yours, the snoek.

Tuss . . .

After being together since 1984 when I was just 19, you would think we would have had enough of Valentine's. Never. We were made for each other, and through thick and thin, happy and sad, you are always there for me with just the right words to make me happy, and I will always be here for you. Two gorgeous, successful children and 26 years later, I love you more than ever.
You have moved way up from fifth. Thanks for being you and for being my #1, always and forever.

Tuss 2

Canton, Baltimore

I love that you put the charm in Charm City, and yet you are ignored by the Charm City circular. I love that the streets bristle with the young and old of Highlandtown, yet you air a sense of belonging to become a jewel of Baltimore. To become my love you transform every pring to a social mecca where outdoor seating is the velvet rope of acceptance. Thank you for being part of my life and continue to stay classy.

My dearest Walt, I am completely and utterly smitten with you. I only wish that I had the words to truly express how much I love you. I hope that you will do me the honor of being my valentine today, and for many years to come.
Sincerely yours,

Your not-so-secret admirer


You are a cutie, even with sleeves.


Thanks for being the best boo ever!!

<3 Milk Dud


Happy Valentine's Day, Bud! Our tenth one together, and still going strong. Can't wait to celebrate with you.


Candy Girl

You are the equivalent of 80's-90's hip-hop in my heart.
The part of me that makes me realize that love DOES exist . . . and TRUST is a full-time job . . . but a RELATIONSHIP is a CAREER.
You're my DJ Hero, the other zero that completes my infinity sign,
You're my three-course meal: mind, body, soul . . .
The scar on my heart that is a constant reminder that a heart can be broken and shattered, but mended so that I can still live another day to love you . . . I rub my hand over it daily and it makes me smile . . . knowing that it's YOU that keeps it beating.
You are the reason for my days repeating . . . the Groundhog's day that I don't mind waking up to, over and over and over.
We live on, live strong, I live for you . . . our love is OUR Frankenstein . . . and IT'S ALIIIIIIIVE! LOL . . . Love you Candy Girl! Then, Now, Forever . . .



We've shared our laughter, our secrets, our wishes and our cares. We've been through good times and tears and by each others side we've remained for years . . . I love you
Faithfully yours,



baby, you have no idea how much you mean to me. i love you more and more every day i wake up next to you. you make so me so ridiculously happy and i hope you'll let me spend the rest of my life trying to do the same for you :)

<3 kate


Thank you for coming back into my life. You were reincarnated into a woman that some how connected to my spirit, my mind and DEFINITELY my body. It's almost scary how much we think alike and share one mind. I love you baby, and I cherish and appreciate YOU, and every moment we share. I look forward to our future and the unshared moments that we haven't shared yet. Happy V-Day my love!



Happy Valentine's Day to the best Ant Slayer I know. Ninja please, be my valentine, haha :)

You're the bestest person I've ever known. I love you with all my heart.



I love you this much. Can't wait to spend this day with you. I'm gonna smother you in sweet, sweet kisses and promise to be on my best behavior all day long. Here's to wearing sweats and perfect garments all day long.
Loving you the most since 2003.


My Dearest Babydoll

I love the way we fit together.

I appreciate you more than words I can express. Thank you for being you and ever sweet to me. Love,



From the start, I knew you were someone special. I'm glad that our relationship has developed into what we have now. I enjoy my time spent with you. You complete me. I look forward to the years to come.



Once again I have the wonderful joy of loving you. Today and all of tommorrows will lead my heart to your heart in the eternal bond of pure love, true love, natural love. My message to you is thank you for being apart of my life.
Forever your girly girly,


Leeann/girly girl.

I'm so glad I met you. I will always love you, forever.


Jasmine Howard, aka Mrs.Jones

From the moment that I met you in school, I knew that we would come together. But I didn't know our love would take us this far. I'm glad I have you in my life and wouldn't want nobody else. I love you, Mrs. Jones!!

Xavier D. Jones

Best Puppy

It's been a magnificent year. Despite all the need for discipline, we've had so many laughs. I'm amazed by how the hours fly by when we are together and how much I miss you when apart. Eager for another year,


Me, Darn it!

I love you, you are the bomb diggity! God loves you. Screw idiots who don't worship the ground you walk on. You sexy, kind, caring, intelligent sista! Happy Valentine's Day!

Candace (aka Me)

Mr. Love

When we kiss my body gives my heart the confirmation it needs to know that there is no choice in loving you. I wish I could walk away after all the times that we have hurt each other, but I continue to wander back for the moments we share that cannot be duplicated, for the Lord knows I have tried. My heart is always and forever yours . . . if you want it.


The King of the Wild Frontier

I have loved you all of my life, and yet today I am in love with you. Thanks for loving me intensely for the 103 months that made you realize just how much you loved me. I cherish our times together and my heart knows it's partner. My soul feels its mate. I always love you. It's never too late.

I love, love you do. You know I love you. I'll always be true. For all our time together in this world.


I. Philip

This time last year, I was just about to fall for you. This time next year, I'll be your wife. I never knew love could be so simple or so perfect.


You're my best friend and all that I could ever want or ask for in a wife, love you. *mushy* lol :)

Its not only because you are beautiful, talented, snorkel, and are PERFECT that I love you and always will, it's those damn fine apple scones that just push my love way over!!!
I will love you forever, I want to be with you, I want to take care of you and spoil you rotten as you should be. You are my everything and without you there is nothing.

You have my heart. Come back from Seattle, if only to give it back.



Happy second Valentine's Day to the man that makes me laugh everyday! Love you!

Your nugget


Can't believe that I met you at "the hole." Love you much. OXOX


My Beautiful Mijo,

Roses are white
Violets are yella'
Since I've found you
I no longer sing a cappella
You are the music to my melody
And the beat of my song
We've got each other
Even through the right and the wrong
You're the link I've been missing
You hold the key to my heart
I'm so glad to have met you
When we kiss, I see sparks
We go well together, like PB&J
You are beyond special and to the world I must say
It's a blessing to know
Just how very wonderful you are
I am so grateful and thankful
God sent me a shining star!

Happy Hearts and Arrows Day, Mijo! I love me some you baby!!

With compassionate love and thankfulness! Be blessed! :-)

Your Chica

andreaux g.

Tickle tickle! I got you back! And in the City Paper no less! You know how much I hate this holiday, but I sure love you and am so happy to have you in my life. Thanks for the past year, wiggle, it certainly hasn't been boring! Ciao!



Dearest love bunny:
You will always be the one I run to to cuddle with at night. Never will I fear chinchillas or woodchucks with you by my side. Meerkats are but a emesis-inducing memory. Through clueless guy friends, golden dragons, and RomanceCake, we will be together.
Yours always and forever,
P.S. The frogs kind of pissed me off.


The Best Mud Slingers This Side of the Mississippi

Happy V-Day to all my Patterson Perk employees! Thanks for keeping me sane(ish) the last three years. I heart you guys.

Your Boss Lady

The lion. (JLB)

Passion is one emotion that dwells in the depths of every human being, and for that reason our passions make it almost impossible for others to judge according to themselves.
There is no choice except who our heart draws us closer too, after that the act of loving is natural and free. But, oh, lover how those times of honey moon and bliss do see there end and the realism of togetherness is one act in which we ourselves are left to define, not with words, but with intent.
In our course there will be one million rifts but also two million victories, for our love we must fight.
I could promise you things like they do on the silver screen, i could tell you that next spring I will by you the a grand diamond ring, but I will not for one simple reason I know you would not want that from me because what that is I would never be.
I promise to stay in touch with myself and the world that surrounds me. I promise to communicate with you openly in times of happiness and despair. I promise to never hide who I am for you so that you may always choose what love is best for you.
Fifty years from now, if it is I you still adore, I can also promise you the story of a lifetime that would have been written with blood, heart and bones. Fifty years from now when there is a discount for your age, I will remind you to think not of how cheap the trade, but fill you up with pride and warmth, because then my love, we would have been part of the bravest army, for we would have fought and marched in the name of our own hearts and desires. What could make a person more alive than having the courage of there convictions? There is nothing more, and that is you and I.


Tia W.

On a paper island in an ink sea I could not write enough to say what you mean to me.

Rahsaan G.


I know all i want is you the good, the bad, and the strange stuff. Whatever it takes to be in your heart. And even if you don't feel the same way. I just thought you should know, always remember, never forget, I LOVE YOU!



I just thought I would tell you I loved you in the City Paper. So glad we met on a random night in a crappy bar and here we are a year later happy as clams.
Love you always,
