Mandy Says "Valentine's Day Is Very Important"

This blog post was sent via an audio email from Mandy, who is a resident at the Bob and Judy Charles SmartHome in Boulder.

Hi, this is Mandy. I like Valentine’s Day because of all the neat stuff and all the candy they have out and the conversation hearts that they have.

I think Valentine’s Day is just a very important day to people.

My mother is a florist, so she works a lot (that day). It’s the biggest holiday of the year for her. She has 18 drivers just out delivering flowers. She’s got 35 people total working for her on Valentine’s Day.

(When asked what her favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is, Mandy replied, “ I don’t know, the balloons I guess.”


(NOTE: One of the best parts of this audio email was hearing Mandy’s housemate Chris in the background providing support and saying, “Awesome Mandy” when she finished).

This photo was taken at Mandy's birthday party, with someone comparing the design
on one of Mandy's birthday cards to the shirt she was wearing.
