Mrs. Lois most definitely made Valentine’s Day one to remember. We spent, what seems like days now, handcrafting the most perfect valentines mailbox one could imagine. All you needed to construct this masterpiece was a shoebox your mom let you empty, construction paper (preferably pink and red), glue--and if you were well behaved, glitter! Once everyone was finished making what would collect letters of love, we lined them up on one long table ready for delivery. We waited in anticipation for day 14, when we were allowed to fill each box with our premeditated love gifts.
The best was yet to come. Once everyone had taken their turn, we were told to grab our overflowing boxes and return to our seat.
I vividly remember thinking how sweet and special Valentine’s Day must be. What a pure joy it was to be 4 and filled with love.
We at The Southern Mercantile want to recreate this feeling for people of all ages. We want to share the love!
Let us introduce you to Hannah, the founder of More Love Letters. Hannah started sharing the love in her own small way and now thousands, maybe even millions, have been loved. Click this link to learn more about her story: https://moreloveletters.squarespace.com/
We hope you feel inspired by her mission. We would love for you to write your own love letter and leave for someone who needs it most. Share the love!
