Remember the post about making valentines for the 18,000 people who receive Meals on Wheels in New York City? Well, I was true to my word and hosted a valentine-making party at my house to support that cause.
On Monday night nine ladies and their kiddos came to spend a few hours crafting and jamming to the Motown mix I selected for the night’s activities. (Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, and The Temptations; how can you go wrong?!) By the evening’s end, 44 lovely valentines had been made!
What a fun night! I mostly hung out with the kids once my own was tucked in so that other moms could enjoy crafting. Before you feel bad for me, let me assure you that those kids were especially cute and very well behaved.
On Tuesday night, I made four of my own valentines to add to the collection. Tomorrow I will be lovingly packing these up and preparing to mail them so that our senior friends in NYC can enjoy them on Valentine’s Day.
