Valentine’s Wish List
Valentine’s Day is not one of those holidays that you decorate your house for in a big way. But it’s always fun to have little accessories here and there to celebrate the month of love. I like the subtlety of Valentine’s Day way more than any grand gesture. When we were growing up, my parents always had a little box of chocolates for us on Valentine’s Day. It was a kind and thoughtful way of implying that Valentine’s Day is for all types of love–not just romantic. Today I’m sharing with you a Valentine’s Wish List for some red and pink home decor items to help get you ready for Valentine’s Day!
My First Valentines
I got my first “official” valentine when I was in second grade (aside from the shoe-box full of valentines that I got from my class mates every year). A boy named Michael Resch brought a giant expensive heart-shaped box of chocolates to school and gave them to me. I remember being mortified and probably ignored him the rest of the school year–a reaction he was not counting on. I’m sure he regretted giving that box of chocolates.
I guess you can say I was a late bloomer and didn’t have any romantic valentines until I was much older. To me, Valentine’s Day is a holiday for love–all the different kinds in our lives. I hope you feel the same! I’d love to hear about your early valentine experiences….
