Valentine Boxes and LOVE14

What are your favorite Valentine's memories? 

Although I treasure each one through the years for different reasons, I admit when I think of Valentine's Day, my mind instantly goes back to the "shoe box" days!  You know what I mean, right?

Where you get a shoe box, cut a hole in the top, cover the box with tissue paper, then plaster it with red paper hearts, maybe red glitter, some of the little Valentine cards you shared with classmates, wrote your name on the box, then took it to school on Valentine's Day, hoping for lots of those little cards back in return!

(Talk about handmade creations!   Do kids still do this?)

We all want to feel special on Valentine's Day, like "Valentine Girl" here!   We want to be reassured we are liked by our friends and loved by our family!  

So I wish each and every one of you a Valentine's Day filled with good wishes and lots of love!  Hope you have a very happy weekend!

Yes, shoe box days are my first memories. Carefully decorating the shoe boxes at school, the glittery the better . . . and then waiting for (hopefully) lots of cards! One rule, though: if you had a box there, you had to put a card in everyone else's box! Fun days!

I like that, "the glittery the better...!" We didn't have the rule about putting a card in everyone's box, but we were encouraged to do so. Nothing would be sadder than an empty Valentine's card box! Thanks for commenting, Catherine! ~Sharyl
