Valentine’s Day

I love Valentine’s Day!  It just fills me with a lovely warm feeling inside!  I always give cards (and sometimes presents too) to my children as well as my partner.  It’s good to remember girl friends, too; thanking them for their love and friendship all through the year.  Share the love!

I came across this quote the other day which made me smile; ‘I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day.  When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon!’  ~Author Unknown

I started thinking about Valentine’s Days in the past; some good, some bad, some indifferent…… I remember when I was at boarding school (I was about 15) and the male chemistry teacher (one of the few, in the very strict, religious, all girl environment) was quizzing me about whether I had a boyfriend.  I thought it was a bit peculiar but didn’t think any more about it until when February 14th came around.  We all rushed, giggling and racing down to the hall to collect our post at morning break.  Instead of the usual array of letters that morning there was the most ENORMOUS card addressed to me!  I was so excited!  It was nearly as tall as me!  I opened the envelope with great gusto and my grin soon turned into a grimace.  How embarrassing.  I was mortified!  In huge letters inside the card was written, ‘love Mummy’.  My street cred (which was never particularly high) plummeted faster than cupid’s arrow could fly to a potential target.  I later learned that the card had been adorning the staff room for several days – hence the Chemistry teachers interest!

So whatever you plan for Valentine’s Day I hope your day is filled with love and laughter.

About weheartcards

http://www.etsy.com/shop/weheartcards Esther Warner started designing cards several years ago, then in 2003 she returned to University as a mature student, completing an IT degree. Since then she has developed her passion for paper and creativity by computerised card-making. In the corporate world she was awarded ‘Worcestershire Businesswoman of the Year’ in 2005 Esther says, “When was little I loved getting post. The excitement of getting a letter or something delivered to my door when it WASN’T my birthday or Christmas was really exciting. Wondering who had sent it and what it could be…. The anticipation of opening the envelope to discover what was inside was thrilling! ” In later years Esther was very homesick at boarding school and the daily post distribution became the most exciting part of the day. Each card from we♥cards is filled with love and made for the recipient personally, Esther hopes that they convey the excitement she felt when she was small and received a letter from her Grandma!
