Mary Norton Mollie Orchid ClutchI know we said we were done with our special Valentine’s Day features and I know Valentine’s Day is over. However, we have a couple more awesome mini-interviews to share with you. Today we bring you the uber glamorous Mary Norton!

Valentine’s Day: Hallmark Holiday or Real deal? In my opinion, any time that makes us stop and take a moment to thank and appreciate those who bring us love and joy in our lives is a worthy event. Therefore whether Valentine’s Day has it’s origins from a saint or from a retailer is meaningless to me. What matters is that it reminds me take one day a year to shower with appreciation and love those who give me their love the other 364 days of the year.

What gift would you love for Valentine’s Day this year? If I could have a Valentine’s wish, I would ask for a little cash windfall to take my husband and kids on a fun family vacation.

Your most memorable Valentine’s Day? I was a really nerdy kid in junior and senior high school and never dated. Beginning in seventh grade, my Dad always had flowers delivered to school for me on Valentine’s Day. It always made me feel so loved and special. My husband, Joe, now does that for our daughters. I love that family tradition.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year? Micah (13), Reilly (11) and I will accompany our hot date, Daddy Joe, out to dinner here in Charleston to our favorite pizza place, Monza. This year it will be a simple night as I leave early the next day for LA for Oscars week!

    I never thought that Mary would remember getting a small boquet of flowers at school after all these years, but it touches her ‘ol Dad’s heart that she does and that her husband, Joe, is continuing the tradition. Thanks for remembering, Mary-O. I love you, Dad
