Valentines Day is getting close. My gosh where does this time go. It really is true that the older you get the faster time flies. Wish it would slow down.
I love this holiday. I think the reason why is that you can make it what you want it to be. A simple card or a greeting to someone you care about, is enough. Some years I send Valentines to lots of people. Not this year........running out of time. One year I made Valentines for a nursing home. I made them so they could put them on the dinner trays. I hope that little card brought old memories back to some of the residents.
I have memories of when I got those cute little cards at school. Remember making those boxes? I love watching my grandkids go through their Valentines. Choosing them these days must be so much fun. We have already received Hello Kitty and cat and dog tattoos in our mail box. My husband had a big laugh over his Hello Kitty Valentine.
When my kids were little I always baked the heart shaped cookies for school. So many times their parties would be on a Friday and there would be a snow day. So, we would have their party at home. I made it fun for them because they were disappointed that school was canceled. The cookies had to be eaten of course, they wouldn't be any good if we waited til Monday.
More hearts will be posted and hopefully those will help you to remember past Valentine Days in your lives.
