when i was young we always made valentine boxes every year.
a shoebox or oatmeal tin would be turned into a mailbox to collect all of the valentines from schoolmates, cards from grandparents that came in the mail and any other little love notes or treats that came our way.
then on valentines day we would open the box to find all of the love in one big burst.
yesterday the girls had a few friends over to share this little tradition of ours.
there was also whipped cream and strawberries, cupcakes and of course conversational hearts.
i had to laugh at how the messages on the hearts have changed since i was a girl.
LOL and text me!! too funny.
