Do you remember decorating shoe boxes in elementary school? Then each student would bring cards and we'd go home with a box of Valentine's Day wishes?
Do you remember making cards with white and/or red dollies in the shape of hearts or circles? And trying to cut wonderful hearts out of red construction paper? These special ones always went to our grandparents and parents?
Do you remember making dozens of rolled cookies? Heart shaped, of course. And decorating them with red (really pink) and white frosting? And trying to write on them with a frosting filled cone? These would go to neighbors and friends.
Do you remember those little heart-shaped candies with words on them? And sorting through them in order to make a sentence and then put them on a little plate for a parent? Or a friend? Or a spouse?
And now, I look through dozens of cards, to find the perfect one for my husband of many+ years, in order to let him know how much I love him.
Happy Valentine's Day to all.
