When I was a child growing up in the small town of Henderson, I remember making colorful sugar cookies with my Mom.
After we made the cookies we would put several on a "paper plate" and Mom would have me take them to the neighbor's house...ring the doorbell, and run and hide until they answered.
Later that same evening, our doorbell would ring and I would run to the door to find a beautiful display of homemade goodies on a "paper plate" from my neighbor friends!
I grew up thinking that was the "norm" for Valentine's Day, but as the years went on, the tradition faded, but the memories remained.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day with lots of love and sweet memories!
