Giving and receiving Valentine’s Day cards is definitely one of my favorite things from childhood. I remember the anticipation I felt as I wrote the names of my classmates on cheery red cards, licked the envelopes and delivered them to my classmates. And I also remember the excitement of tearing open the cards I received.
This was my daughter’s first year at school where kids exchanged Valentine’s Day cards. She picked out one of her treasured Armenian dresses to wear to school for the festivities. When I picked her up a few hours later, she proudly displayed her personally-decorated supersized Valentine’s envelope, that her teacher secretly stuffed with surprises from her fellow schoolmates. It was a BIG deal–as evidenced by the smile on her face!
Later, back at the ranch, envelope opening commenced after she changed into her princess costume, because why wouldn’t you want to dress up to open your Valentine’s Day cards? This was a special occasion!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s all about the journey,
