Valentimes Is Comin'!

When I was little I had a buncha misconceptions about Valentines day. Firstly was the pronunciation of it, I hung with "Valentimes" until like the 5th grade I think. I was most likely way too busy with other stuff to learn that it was "Valentine". Another one that they tried to drill through our little puny, pre-adolescent skulls was that to be fair, EVERYONE got a Valentine card in their highly decorated shoe box that were placed over at the side of the classroom.

We went through this whole phase in early grade school where we had a snack time in the afternoon. It lasted for about 2 years and none of us could ever figure it out, but at snack time we could have Govt. raisins, Govt peanut butter, Govt milk or a snack of our bringing... but not candy or chips or anything decent.

I cannot begin to tell you how many Valentine boxes I filled with Raisins, and shoving a peanut butter sandwich thru the skinny little slot on top... THAT'S a challenge. I was always eager to see the expressions of gratitude on my little classmate's faces upon opening their Valentine PB and raisin surprise.


As the years went by, my awkwardness with displays of affection improved. Not every girl appreciates a good raisin surprise. And not everyone needs to get a Valentine from you.

But all of y'all do. :-)















And to prove I HAVE improved with my Valentine skills over the years, my personal Valentine to all of you. It's kinda mushy, go get a Kleenex.

















Nothin' says lovin' like something from a baboon's ass.




I got a special Valentines Day post comin' up in a couple of days. Yeah, like this one wasn't special enough.

Considering this will likely be my only "Balentime" (that's what I thought it was for years and still say it that way), I am overwhelmed! I love all of it but mostly the flower you picked in the back yard!
