Valentine Happy

     Here's a little Valentine happy to get you in the mood. Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. My younger sister and I both have February birthdays and we are almost exactly one year apart. When we were younger our momma split the difference between us, and we usually would have a joint birthday party on Valentine's Day. I loved it. Red hearts. Candy. Paper Doilies. What's not to love about Valentine's Day? When my children were little I always baked a heart-shaped cake on Valentine's Day. The kind with fluffy white icing pulled up into peaks. I still have the pans. Maybe I will dust them off and bring them out now that I have granddaughters. Oh wait. My granddaughters are probably still a bit too young for that fluffy white icing.

     The two pictures below are from one of our joint birthday parties. To this day, I remember this particular party. The plastic doily hats were a bit hit with the girls. Not so much with the boys. I also remember that we got matching Timex watches with little black bands. I think my sister still has hers. She took care of everything. I have no clue where mine is. Does that tell you anything? She's at the head of the table in the top picture. I am at the opposite head in the bottom picture. I look like I am picking my nose. Knowing me, I probably was. That fuzzy figure in the left is my momma. Photos were taken by my Daddy circa 1962, Cape Canaveral, Florida.
