My husband and I have been together 21 years, and it’s been quite a while since we made any kind of fuss about Valentine’s Day. In fact, I’d pretty much forgotten about it entirely until my daughter started kindergarten and there was that horrid realization that I needed to do something to help my daughter organize Valentines for her classmates.
CVS and Spongebob to the rescue (thank, God)!
My daughter’s current school is pretty low key about Valentines, so we don’t stress about it nearly as much now. Still, she likes to do something, so I try to honor that by picking her up a little Valentine gift, and getting her a few treats to take to her besties at school.
I was pretty happy to read about #Tweethearts, because even as old as I am there is still something pretty special about those little heart candies with words stamped on them. Basically, if you send a tweet to @tweethearts they will instantly send you back the image I’ve posted on the left, spelling out your message in candies. They tweet it back to you:

Pretty cute, right? You can then order a bag of custom made candies, and have them shipped to you in 3-5 days (apparently you should order by February 5th to guarantee delivery by the big day). Although adorably clever, they aren’t exactly cheap (about $30 for a pound of candy hearts), but I’m still considering getting some for my kiddo.
What do you think? Will you send a #Tweetheart?
