Happy Hump Day!
Hope you are all enjoying your week. Today I am going to continue my Valentine's Day mini series - with a night look for the upcoming occasion.
Although 'A' is definitely my love and Valentine these days, I can't help but think back to my childhood Valentine.
When I was younger I remember getting so excited each year to go to the store and choose my Valentine's Day cards! I have always loved cartoons, still do, and it was a blast picking out which character would be on my cards...
What was even more fun was creating a box for all of your Valentine's to go into. I remember one year I made a mailbox. :) And some kids
parents would get pretty creative, some made robots, while others just decorated old shoe boxes!
Once I grew out of that stage of school Valentine's parties; me and my girlfriends at school celebrated by getting all dressed up and passing out cards and candy to our closest friends.
And although I never really dated in grade school, I always had a Valentine!
Every year, he would wake me and all my sisters up and give us all cards, candy, and his staple gift - a stuffed animal!
Now, these were not just your ordinary stuffed animals...
They were usually always the kinds that sang songs, or said fun, catchy phrases. Last year I even got a green animal with pink hair that moved his neck and sang Chris Brown's "With You" song :)
|And as wacky as it looked, I loved it! |
I never realized it until I got older - but I appreciate my father all these years. He always had a Valentine in my mother! (They've been married 32 years - remember this post?)
White Slacks - Calvin Klein
Leopard Pumps - Qupid
Tan Clutch - Thrifted
Red/Gold Necklace - Thrifted
Cream/Gold Bracelets - Gift from my Mom :)
BUT he has always made me and all 4 of my sisters feel loved and cared about on Valentine's Day, no matter if we had a significant other or not!
I love that man!
What can you remember about your childhood Valentine's Days?
Have a good day!!
