Apparently that margarita swilling Nicole has used up all the Martha Stewart crack in the ‘hood. We took good ole storebought Barbie Fairytopia cards this morning for Caitlin’s class and she couldn’t have been more thrilled with her Dollar Tree greetings. And do you remember actual envelopes with your kid size Valentine’s when you were little? I guess those have been ruled too costly for the greeting card industry. I also recall decorating shoe box “mailboxes” for all my pint-size Valentine’s. I also remember my mother always bought only the best chocolates for us…Russell Stover candies (hey, Godiva wasn’t around back then.)
Caitlin did color this very cool Valentine’s Day butterfly for one of her teachers (and a groovy heart for her other teacher). Both girls have parties to attend at 11 where there will be much sugar consumption. I, on the other hand, have a departmental work meeting at that time. Where’s the love?! Oh, wait a minute…someone just left a pack of Valentine Nerds candy on my desk. Cupid lives!I thought it would be fun to share your special song with your sweetheart, and if you’re not married or dating, perhaps your favorite hook up song. (Do single people still hook up these days or am I revealing my single scene dorkitude by sounding like I’m stuck in an episode of Friends?) Any way, our special song is “Always” by Atlantic Star. I think if we had truly thought about the line…Come with me my sweet. Let’s go make a family….our teenage selves would have run shrieking into the night. Little did we know 20 years ago that we would make a family.Any way, what’s your song?
