Happy Friday! + The Valentine Boy

[Picture+28.png]The Valentine Boy: The mysterious young man, never seen before by the human eye, who comes to my house every year on February 14th. He rings the door bell then runs out of sight. Leaving behind a small mound of Valentine gifts and treats on the front porch.

. . . what? "you've never heard of him!?!"

That's what I said to all of my elementary friends after asking them if they were excited for the "Valentine Boy" to come to their house that evening.

I later learned that apparently, the Valentine Boy was a tradition made sometime back by my Mother's side of the family. My husband thinks it's silly...but I think it's a wonderful idea! Especially for all of the children/teenagers who grew up never having a "significant other" who praised them with gifts on this special day...(that might have been me :)

I can't wait to see what the Valentine Boy brings me in just a couple of short weeks!...(Hint Hint)

Happy Friday!

  1. What a fun idea! My parents would always leave us Valentine's treats by our place at the kitchen table. I love little things like that!

  2. I'll have to say, I cracked up the first time your mom told me about the Valentine Boy. Now that Chalynn is the only one home I wish I'd started doing this. Wonder how hard it would be to convince her this kids just showed up after all these years.

  3. I LOVE this idea - everyone deserves some sweetness on Valentine's Day!
