Every year for the past 20 plus years, someone (or more likely some people) go out into the frigid dark in the wee hours of the morning of February 14th, and plaster every storefront, church, school, library, restaurant, hotel, sign post and more with bright red hearts. And every year, I forget all about Valentine's Day until I drive through downtown Montpelier and see the cheerful hearts that are taped everywhere. It always makes me smile and reminds me to call all my kids to wish them Happy Valentine's Day. It also makes me plan a great dinner with my awesome husband of thirty years. Best of all, this year the Phantom put a heart on one of my real estate signs on a house at the edge of town. That heart on my sign makes me happier than a SOLD sign! Well, maybe not quite that happy but close. Whoever the Valentine Phantom(s) of Montpelier is (are) I applaud the hard work it must be to leave a warm bed for the icy and snowy streets of Montpelier because it's just another proof for what a fantastic little city where we are lucky to live. No wonder real estate in Montpelier sells so quickly!
