Happy Valentine's Day

































This is a two-part post. The first part is explaining that I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. I never really have been. I fall into the category of feeling that it is way too commercialized! Plus, it's just one of those holidays that not everyone enjoys (besides the fact that it falls right after Christmas)....and many of you who know me have heard me say that I don't need 1 day to tell Chris (and now Jake) and my family and friends how much I love them! I try to do that most days.... With that being said, the "second part" to this post is I do have a sentimental side, so I can embrace the holiday, too. I like to send out Valentine's Day cards....and Chris and I usually exchange a card - go out to dinner when he is around (have never really been big on the "gifts"), but as I was going through boxes in the garage, I came across my first Valentine's "gift" from Chris. I decided to post the pictures - for fun. I believe Chris and his family moved to Stafford, VA the summer of 1991. On Valentine's Day 1992, Chris gave me a card and a heart shaped box of chocolates. That was 17 years ago! I was 10 and Chris was 9. I'm glad I saved this card...and cardboard heart shaped box.
