Special Valentine "stamp" only available in one place

For Valentine's Day, there is only one place in the United states where you can get an official "stamp" of love. That is Valentine, Texas.

It happens every February in the high desert mountains of West Texas. Maria Carrasco and her helper put the mark of Valentine on every piece of mail that comes through their tiny post office.

Fewer than 100 cards and letters come through here on any given day. But not in February.

"We've done as many as 14,000 in one day," Carrasco said. 

There are no fancy postmark machines. All of the stamps are canceled by hand and each card given a second, special stamping.
