Who doesn't love these little sentimental candy hearts this time of year?
Email me, text me, I love you.
They have a bunch of different little sayings on them.
Many ways to say something a little sweet to someone sweet.
When I was sixteen, I hand selected some special ones for a boy I liked. I wanted to say these things myself, but being the shy girl I was, I decided to drop little hints as to how I was feeling was a better idea. After I chose all the perfect little sweet hearts that said the perfect thoughts, I bagged them up and tied the bag with a pretty bow.
How very clever (I thought to myself) as I presented this little gift to the boy.
He took the bag from me and opened it. He poured some out into his hand and without even giving them any thought, he popped them all into his mouth. Horrors! Did he not realize that I hand picked those? Oh great I thought. Now he didn't even read any of those. All my hard work picking out the ones that had the perfect sayings on them but was too afraid to say. Ones that told the story of my heart, gone forever! Swallowed without even a thought.
Good thing I married the boy. Now I can tell him what's on my heart anytime I want.
And that is
