Valentines Day....take 3!
I remember way back in the day...yes I'm old...Valentines day at school. Decorating a shoe box to put all those many valentines cards and candy in was the highlight for this crafty girl! I remember my 3rd grade class...Mrs. Miles... and my very first boyfriend...S.Johnson. He walked in with a huge heart shaped box of candy...looking straight at me with the biggest smile on his face...yes I thought it was for me! You see...the day before he told me he was bringing me chocolate. He then turned straight to the teacher and handed it to her and I was... believe it or not ...relieved. I was so afraid of all the teasing I would get... had he handed that HUGE box of chocolate to me. Good thing we were young...I might of hit him with that candy box! I was glad when our teacher gave the go ahead to open our boxes filled with those silly little cards and candy hearts. It's funny how a shoe box full of silly little cards can bring back such memories of childhood days.
I still enjoy getting Valentines day cards and for the last 26 years I have received my very own box of chocolate from the most handsome man with the biggest smile on his face!
