Okay, if you’ve been on my Pinterest, you’ve seen my kid’s party board named “My Mom Threw The Best” and that is because my mom did throw the best parties as a kid…we had luaus, huge slumber parties, elaborate themed cakes…Mom also made a big deal about the little holidays. So, every Valentine’s Day we got a little present and Sweethearts. I loved the Sweethearts, like really loved the Sweethearts. That is why yesterday I was outraged to discover that Necco changed their flavors in 2010. Instead of pure sugary, delicious chalk, they are now fruit-flavored chalk, and not in a good way! This person summed up my feelings very well – http://www.candyblog.net/blog/item/sweethearts_2010/

I’ve never been a big V-Day fan – probably because I was single for several years pre-Joel, and now they have gone and changed the one thing about Valentine’s that I like. The only thing that is redeeming V-Day this year is these cute little matches that Anne from Annechovie posted yesterday.
If you still believe in making the little holidays magical, please buy me these matches.
