We don’t often make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day. Usually it involves looking at our restaurant gift card stash and picking a place where we want to go for dinner, having a great meal and only having to pay for tips because the rest is on the gift cards. But because restaurants are out of the question, we had to do things a little bit differently.
I was terrible. I did things the way a stereotypical guy does. He realizes Valentine’s Day is approaching, so scoots into the nearest place that might have stuff with a Valentine’s Day theme, buys something and runs out the door hoping she likes it. That was kind of the way I did it. Thankfully, Dana Shortt Gourmet had the perfect basket, and delivered it quickly. At least I didn’t look like a total fool.
But Steve got me the sweetest thing ever, literally and because that makes a good pun. He heard about this One Stop Candy Shop place. I guess this kid started this business as a project for school to make it easy to buy candy and bring it to people’s doors. He’s saving 45 percent of the profits for school-related stuff, 45 percent for fun and 10 percent to donate to charity. I think that’s great!
I wish I had taken a picture of the box before I dismantled it so Aira could tell me what all was in there, because I’d post it here. The box Steve ordered was a Valentine’s box, so it had a theme of sweet things and heart-shaped things and kisses and all that sort of thing. We are going to enjoy the heck out of that box, and get a warm fuzzy feeling because we helped out a local kid.
