Greg Stinis, a pilot with Skytypers, told 8 News Now he was coming back from a skywriting gig when the thought inspired him.

According to their website, "Skywriting is a single plane twisting and turning at an altitude of about 10,000 feet emitting a biodegradable trail of vapor to form spectacular letters and symbols in the sky."

Stinis said he wasn't paid to do it, but wanted to attract attention because Valentine's Day was coming up.

We think you'll agree he was successful.

For the record, prices begin around $1,800 in southern California and Las Vegas areas, the website said. You can find out more about the company here.
