My fondest Valentine memory goes way back to February 1985 when my oldest son Brian was 13. He had just started a paper route for the San Jose Mercury News. Every afternoon while delivering his papers he would pass by a flower stand along his route. Since he only had his paper route for a very short time when Valentine's day came around money was a bit tight. He took 35 cents with him that day with the intention of stopping at the flower stand to buy me a carnation. After picking out the carnation the lady told him they were 50 cents. He explained to her he only had 35 cents. Thankfully she had a soft heart and told him she would except his 35 cents for the carnation. I can still remember him handing me that beautifully fragrant flower! Sometimes the little things make the BIGGEST memories!
The Cutest Cupids Ever!

Of course who wouldn't want a heart shaped box of See's Candy and beautiful roses?
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
