Happy Valentine's Day!!

Talk about art... How beautiful is a new box of chocolates?  My hubby always buys me a box for Valentine's Day.  Unfortunately, he went to the store to make his purchase yesterday, and they did not stock the heart boxes of chocolates.  He came home completely deflated. :(  Since we both had to work today, I told him not to worry about it.  Plus, my son had to meet me at lunch time so we could go pick up his and our taxes.  He came back with me to work, and my hubby was there to see what was going on. (He works as a plumber/electrician a few businesses down from the ceramic/antique shop.)  We had a nice talk, and they left.  Before I knew it, my son was walking back in with a heart shaped box of chocolates for me.  He gave me a hug and wished me a Happy Valentine's Day.  How cool is that?  Then in comes my hubby with an identical box!  WHAT??  Major chocolate!! (Plus I had those chocolate chunk cookies from the previous post at home!!)  Do you know what the coolest part of the story is though?  My son heard my hubby's dilemma, and he went shopping after school and bought both boxes without my hubby knowing.  You know there are days when we as parents are taken back by our kids thoughtfulness.  Aren't we lucky?  *sigh*

Happy Valentine's Day!
