What I’m Not Getting For Valentine’s Day

Some of my favorite Valentine’s gifts from SwingDaddy have been these fuzzy red heart-shaped boxes of chocolate from Godiva. Fuzzy! Red! Delicious!

However, half a dozen years ago, I issued a moratorium on any cute heart shaped chocolate boxes being brought into the house, because I realized that I can’t bear to part with them, and we’d soon be overwhelmed with empty boxes. The hearts pictured were from Valentine’s Days long, long ago.

This year, we’re giving each other new computer keyboards. And some chocolates in dull, boring containers.

Those are very lovely boxes, indeed. I'm not sure that I'd be able to part with them either.

I believe I am getting an apron for Valentine's Day, based on the fact that I asked for it and then watched my hubby purchase it on line. Several years of marriage and two children and this is where we end up.

Hey, Misterpie is getting oven mitts and tea towels... And I think I might get nothing because I'm soon getting jewels for the bearing of the Bun. Those should nicely cover <3 day, too, I guess. I pick them up some time in the next couple of weeks. (How lucky is this - I discovered that my children's birthstones are sapphire and diamond - my faves! Yeah, so getting a mom's ring.)
