Remember (back in the day) when you would go to the grocery store and buy a box of Valentine’s Day cards to give out to your friends at school? I remember FREAKING out one year because I swore I wrote cards to all of my classmates but when I counted them I was one short… Yep, that was me… I didn’t write one to myself and couldn’t figure out that’s who was missing. Well – today I’m a little smarter and can figure that one out pretty quick.
The days of the boxed Valentines are gone and it’s become sort of a tradition that my daughter gives out her own CUSTOM Valentine cards each year. I pretend to grumble and groan at her over the whole thing but secretly – I love it. I love seeing how she’s growing up before my eyes and is really becoming such a beautiful person. Sure she has braces right now and a few freckles but that’s who she is, an amazing 9 year old! I also like the fact that she wants to pick out the layout and the wording so it’s really a collaboration and valuable time together. She’ll make an amazing art director some day!
Happy Valentine’s Day Camille – I hope you love your cards.
