Heart Shaped Chocolate Boxes

Ten days before Valentine's Day, there was no doubt that the family-run shop was ready. More than two dozen heart shaped boxes lined the candy counters, ready to be ordered and filled with a customized assortment for your sweetie. I wondered if there was any heart-patterned wrapping paper left in town. It all seemed to be neatly covering the rest of the chocolates, stacked behind the counter, ready for those who lacked the foresight to order the fancier boxes ahead of time. Hopefully they have all gone to new homes, spreading love and deliciousness along the way.
