Just a short post – been a very busy week!! Valentine’s Day is not one of my favorite holidays. I feel it’s best suited for “young” love and kids!! So – I struggled with what to post for this week’s 52 Ancestor challenge. I decided to share the first Valentine’s Day cards I ever got – and the last one I received from my mom.
It should be noted that these cards traveled a very long way to get to me – my parents and I were living in Japan on a US Naval base in 1955. Also notable is that, on my 1st Valentine’s Day, I was a mere 5 days old – my birthday is February 9th!
|My first Valentine from my maternal grandparents – Rose and Paul Lichtenthal|
|My first Valentine from my paternal grandparents.
Hortense and Edgar Samuel
|This is what the card looks like with the little feet folded up.
|The last Valentine I got from my mom, Doris Lichtenthal Falcone.
