Have you seen the movie “You’ve Got Mail”? If you’re a fan of Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks flicks, this one is a must see. I’m not going to give it all away, though I could recite the whole thing by heart, but Kathleen (Meg Ryan) and Joe (Tom Hanks) meet in an online chatroom and basically became virtual pen pals. At one point in the movie Tom Hanks says he would give Meg a “bouquet of newly sharpened pencils” if he knew her name and address. It was the sweetest sentiment and I’ve been obsessed ever since. So here is my (and your!) chance to live out my “You’ve Got Mail” fantasies: Printable Pencil Valentines! Valentine’s Day is a holiday most often celebrated through the gifting and consumption of chocolates. I have no qualms with that tradition, generally speaking. But, even I can appreciate a candy-free Valentine! School teachers, mothers, and whole-30 enthusiasts rejoice! Whether you opt for a whole bouquet of pencils or a single bloom, these stems are sure to please all!
