Every year, my mom gets my sistes and me a Valentine. I can remember being a little girl and she had bought me a pencil with this little cute plastic bear on the top where the earaser would go. It was holding a red heart. I hung onto that bear for a looooong time. One year, we received a small silver heart that at this moment I wish I had a photo of for you. When I was away in Pittsburgh for school, my mom sent me a Valentines package with a batch of heart shaped cookies with pale pink frosting. You can bet I was everyones friend with those cookies! And then one year, my dad made each girl a thin, wooden, rustic heart washed red with paint. It was hung by a jute string. It now hangs above my bed. (I'm redoing my bedroom tomorrow so I'll have a pic of it this upcoming week to show you.)
So, the other day, I got a Valentine's package from mom. Inside was tucked some mail. But in that mail was a red envelope with a beautiful card. There were also two chocolate bars that she had covered with these pretty, vintage inspired labels. Shane plowed into his candy bar right away. He told me that I better eat mine quick or he would since it was so good. Having the Hershey plant a few hours away, you know you are getting some goooood chocolate. I savored every bite!
She loves me.
