Be My Valentine

Be My Valentine…

Valentines Day has always been a special day in our family. Dad would bring Mom a present of flowers or a special heart shaped box of chocolates. Dad never forgot my Brother and I. We got our own smaller box of chocolates. Each chocolate flavor was a mystery till bitten into. Brother and I sampled and critiqued each shape and flavor. We may have swapped a few but do not remember ever throwing any out.

The day became even more special when I married my sweetheart 31 years ago on Valentines Day. There have been many chocolates eaten since, but still seems like yesterday.

This postcard is postmarked February 14, 1908. It came from Grandma’s Trunk and has been restored. It was to Grandma from her cousin Lola. Grandma was 11 years old at the time.
