I'm sure some of you avid Pattiwagoneers have been waiting with bated breath for this post. (right? RIGHT?) If you're a new Pattiwagoneer, my family and I have a tradition of making each other Valentine's Day cards every year. You can see previous Valentine postshere and here and here and here.
I went with an old-school theme this year. The front of each card was a simply a heart, and here are the outsides:
For my dad,
And here are the ones I received:
From my mom,
The poem is an allusion to the world's most resilient Christmas tree ornament. It is a real ice cream cone that has lived through five presidents (i.e., 27 years). And it still looks like this. I think it has super powers. Or just a lot of additives.
From my dad,
You can never go wrong with a UK-themed card. Especially in a year when they're 31-0.
And from my sister,
Do you remember where you were when you found out that SkyMall was going bankrupt? I do, and it felt like a little piece of my heart died. And so when I opened up this card with ACTUAL PHOTOS FROM ACTUAL SKYMALLS, that little piece of my heart was filled with a special kind of joy, equaled perhaps only by solving Fermat's Last Theorem or birthing a baby.
And of course, here's a Valentine's Day bulletin board for all your oohing and aahing.
