Your Valentine's Stories: Giant Hearts

Etsy / nanciesvintagenest

When my now-husband and I were first dating (almost 22 years ago!) he bought me a box of Godiva chocolates for Valentine's Day. As much as I liked it I told him that he didn't have to spend that kind of money on chocolate and that I'd rather have one of those big heart-shaped boxes of Whitman's chocolates. You know, the one with the big plastic roses on it.

So, the next year, because he loves me so, he went out to buy the biggest heart-shaped box he could find. While standing on line at the store, the older lady on line in front of him asked if he was getting that for his girlfriend and said if so, he might want to reconsider and get a "nicer" box of chocolate. He explained to her what happened the year before and that this was what I wanted. The lady was speechless. The guy behind him asked, "Does she have a sister?"

All these years later, I still get the giant heart-shaped box and I love it!

Happy Valentine's Day!
