My dad used to send us Valentines every year. I wrote about his gifts by entering a Daily Candy Deals Valentine’s Day Sweepstakes. My entry (100 words or less) reads as follows:
Each year Dad sent me and my sister Valentine’s Day gifts. The most memorable valentines were the tubes of Lancôme hair mascara. How’d we get a Dad who was so in the know about cool cosmetics? The most cherished valentines Dad ever sent were the Michele watches with red patent leather bands. I still wear mine with the original band. Dad passed away almost four years ago. And while my sister and I can’t look forward to Dad’s witty Valentine’s Day cards and fun gifts anymore, we’ve kept up the tradition and send them to each other.
I find out if I win $500 in Daily Deals later this week…
Oh and this year, my sister sent me enrobed petit fours from Harry & David; and I sent her flowers--an orchid.
