Filed under Homemaking Holidays and Seasons
When my husband was in seminary, we were on a tight budget which I am sure many can relate too. So for Valentine’s day one year, I went to our local Walmart and purchased a shiny red heart filled with 25 chocolates; the flavors didn’t matter. When I got home, I removed all of the chocolates but left the brown protective wrappings that they were sitting in. I then made 25 little hearts in shades of pink, red, and white. On each little heart, I wrote on one side “The sweetest thing about you is….” and on the reverse side I would lavish him with compliments such as “your dreamy eyes” or “your drop dead gorgeous smile.” I carefully rolled up the hearts and tied little bows around them to keep each one in place and then put one inside each of the brown protective wrapping that the chocolates were in. My husband loved it! He wasn’t at all upset that I had already picked out the chocolate covered caramels! Happy Valentine’s Day!
