Each February the dear husband brings home
his annual bag of conversation hearts
. He prefers the larger scalloped ones
over the smaller version...
They are better.
Didn't know that?
Yep, that's what the dh says...
I'm pretty sure they are all made from the same recipe,
we'll just let him believe they are better,
I'm not too fond of conversation hearts myself,
I always find myself stealing a heart or two...
This year's stolen heart was that orange one.
The one that says honey pie.
I read it,
said, "no way"...
stomped my feet with excitement,
told the dh "I'm saving this one"
and tucked it onto a special little spot
on a shelf of my stepback cupboard.
But not before I tucked it into his fist
for him to see.
.My dearest has called me
since high school days.
He would start his love notes to me,
Dear Honey Pie...
and then sign them -
yeppers, he always misspelled always ;-)
I always thought it was silly...
I loved being called his honey pie.
I always thought he sort of made those words up.
I had heard of a honey bunch
a sweetie pie.
But honey pie?
I just always figured
he got the two words switched around
and came up with honey pie...
so for all of these years
it was sort of an inside joke
So this years bag of hearts
there really is such a thing as honey pie?
I even Googled it,
Dr. Google confirmed it.
It is a term used more heavily in the south.
What can I say...
I was born and raised a Minnesotan,
way up nort
where they call ya sweetie pies
and honey bunches...
yah, you betcha!
So today is the day of love.
I don't expect a big bouquet of red roses
from my heart throb.
there will be a card
with a Russel Stover's marshmallow heart
sitting on the piano
The heart will be sitting on a card
that will be addressed to
that is perfectly
Happy Valentines Day everyone,
happy valentine day to you too dear..
Happy Valentine's Day Brenda! Love reading your posts!
What a great Valentine's story! Happy V'Day to you and your DH!!
Happy Valentine's Day Brenda!♥
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
As a southern girl, I've heard Honey Bun, Honey Bunch, and Sweetie Pie, but not Honey Pie! That makes you uniquely special!
Happy Valentines' Day! ♥
Happy Valentine's day to you! By the way, I think the larger hearts are better too!
awwww thats lovely :) and hope you have a wonderful Valentines day :) love mouse xxxx
Did you know that there is a song called 'Honey Pie' by the Beatles?
Google it, it's out there...
Happy Valentine's Day to you and your DH. My grandma from Abbeville,SC always called everyone
That's indeed a special heart that you found in the bowl.
Awe, that is so sweet! Blessings sent to you and you DH!!
Now that you believe in Honey Pie, how about thinking of Love Allways as meaning love in all ways - happy or sad, good times or bad - you get the picture, and it's looking pretty love filled to me!
Yes, we Southerners love our 'honey pies' and all sorts of sweet names
we cast about. I have used that one
frequently to my husband and son.
Come to think of it, I don't remember
them calling me that!!
I loved this post Brenda! What a great story! Honey Pie is a lovely term of endearment.
My DH is a little corny and old fashioned and he always calls me his beloved, pronouncing it with the three syllables be-luv-ed.
It's a little different but I wouldn't have it any other way.
What a lovely story, and a lovely tradition, Brenda. That's awesome! I'm glad you have a honey to be happy with! I got a couple of phone calls from friends, and I had a lovely day too. (The finish helped, lol.) Have a great one!
A darling post!!
I love honey-pie! I've used that occassionaly but generally, my term of endearment is "sugar". Of course, I am a southerner by birth!
