Patch asked our readers for love stories on Valentine's Day, and Heather Montgomery said she didn't have a Valentine in 2003, because her now-husband didn't want to be ‘cliché.’
Heather Montgomery shared the story of her relationship with husband Matt, which started in Wisconsin after Valentine’s Day in 2003. Heather and Matt Montgomery met at Northland Baptist Bible College in Dunbar, Wis., where they worked together cleaning the dining hall at least four nights per week. The pair quickly became best friends. “We started dating just after Valentine’s Day in 2003,” Heather said. “He waited until after because he thought it would be too cliché to ask me out on Valentine’s Day, but I was a little perturbed that he left me without a Valentine.” Heather forgave Matt, though. “He’s made every Valentine’s Day amazing since then,” Heather said. They have been married for 6.5 years and Heather is “crazier about him now…

Brass knuckles, a loaded gun and duct tape were among the items found with a Valentine from a husband to his wife, allegedly threatening 39 kinds of violence.

Montco Mommy doesn't need tons of fuss this holiday
Do you watch “The Middle” on ABC? I love it. I loved it more this week, when Mom Frankie and Dad Mike sit down to explain to their youngest son Brick what love is, by highlighting their Valentine’s Day plans for him (while taking down the Christmas tree, mind you). The couple goes back and forth on options of going out to eat (too crowded), the movies (they could sleep at home for free), so decide on a bucket of chicken on the couch on their sweats. To take it further, Mike likes sports, so they decide on a bucket of chicken, in separate rooms, on separate televisions, in sweats. It is a perfect Valentine’s Day plan, if you ask me. I’m just that kind of girl. I’m not a big fan of flowers or chocolates. I generally wonder even as I’m …
