THEN AND NOW THURSDAY–week of love

heart1Our week of love continues with THEN AND NOW Thursdays.

As you can imagine, I had to check into the candy hearts.

Remember those chalky little things? We’d get them in their small, pink boxes that had a see through front in the shape of a heart?

THEN:

candy-hearts-thenRemember those cute little sayings. “Be Mine” or “Kiss Me?”  Did you get them with a little cartoon card messily signed by some secret valentine?

And, don’t forget those little boxes we had to make in gradeschool then go around and put the cards in….Oh my goodness.

The sayings on those little candies were so sweet and innocent back then, right? never looked into them much.

NOW:

Some of the sweet sayings have changed with the times.

“URA QT”

“Tres Chic”

Or anything you want them to say.

I bet they still taste the same, though. But I’ll always remember childhood when I chomp on those candy hearts
