Love Week 2013: You’ve Got Mail


We didn’t use our Valentine’s mailboxes last year for what ever reason  – probably laziness on my part.  My sister picked up this tradition and reminded me that I had them, so I quickly pulled them out on the last day of January, embellished them a little with cupids and names and ran to Target to get a few bags of candy.

Our kids’ schools have cracked down hard on no candy included with Valentine’s this year, which is totally fine by me, but I like to give them a little something sweet each day leading up to Love Day – whether it be a quick note telling them something I love about them or a piece of chocolate.

RedDog was quick to remind me that I missed two days this weekend {we had way too many birthday treats to eat} so I surprised the kids today with three pieces of chocolate instead of one. Owlie thought he’d won the lottery!

I don’t know about you, but I am still a complete sucker for real mail in the good old fashioned mailbox. This is my little lovely way of sharing that joy with my kids. Happy mail!

Everyone here loves the Valentine's mailbox idea. Thank you! The other day they received special pencils and were encouraged to write a love note to someone in the family. The results were fabulous!

Hmmm, chocolate...the perfect way to start the day. I'm happy and I bet your kids are to that you brought out the mailboxes again.

The mailbox idea is awesome! It's such a cute way to give them little treats and gifts. I love getting real mail... I always check the mail, but not very often there is something different than bills... :(
