When Valentine's Day comes around people like to scope out what other people are doing. When they ask Shelby and me, we usually say "nothing." I think some people are surprised but we've always been low-key about these holidays. Birthdays are the same way. We've been together for a long time and I think since we were on a tight budget when we first got married (see About) we've always just enjoyed a card and/or some candy. As the years went by we just kind of kept things simple and we're good with that.
I did get Shelby a card and I decided instead of giving her a real flower I made one...from Maltesers!
Shelby loves Maltesers. It's her favorite candy. Before, I would have to drive anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour to the only shops in the area that carry them. Now we have one in Virginia Beach that keeps stocked up; I guess I'll tell you it's the big Kroger on Holland Rd. but you better buy them all!
All it took was about 7 bags of Maltesers, some jasmine leaves, and lots of tape. She really liked it.
Happy Valentines Day Mrs. Shelby.
