WOOD-PATTERN LOVE BOX This is the gift you can give all year long. Inside this charming wood-patterned paper box are 12 love-themed cards for you to list all the reasons why you love that special someone in your life. Give to your spouse, a boyfriend, your children, a favorite Aunt, a Grandparent or a special friend. Once the notes are personalized, this box becomes a gift of love that your loved one will consider a treasured keepsake. Add an element of surprise and hide the box somewhere your recipient would least suspect: in their car, at their office or buried in their sock drawer. This little surprise will surely brighten their day. Includes 4-1/4” x 4-1/4” x 3” box with 12 love-themed cards.

Once we know you have posted your story we will announce it so everyone else can read! Good Luck!

Hi Tasha,
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I would love to take part in your writing contest but it's too late now.

You look beautiful without makeup and you look gorgeous with it. I need to put on makeup whenever I'm out because I look so sickly.

You are a wonderful Mom to your lovely kids.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!
