Valentines

I've always loved Valentine's Day. I have fond memories of my early years in elementary school - bringing in a shoe box to decorate, complete with a slot on top. The big day would arrive and we would leave our boxes on top of our desks all day and cross our fingers. Hopefully, by the end of the day, your box would be crammed full. It was also fun to sneak around the class room and drop off my Peanuts, Holly Hobby or Barbie valentines in other kids' boxes.

Thank goodness for those Moms would would make their kids give everyone in the class a valentine. I used to feel horrible for the ones who didn't get very many.

I found a little widget on another blog that just tickled me. Wanna send me a Valentine? I won't see them until Valentine's Day. Go ahead. Click the box below. I love you too.

Oh, and if you decide to put this in your blog, be sure and let me know. :-)

We did the same thing in Elementary School ~ my mom made such a beautiful box for me with doilies & everything ~ I remember well. I always made sure I gave everyone in class a Valentine, although I didn't get as many as others did. :::sigh:::

Now...how do I put 1 of these things in my blog?

Smooches,
