Ways to my heart...
Next year I need to try and remember to create more fun around Valentine's Day. There are so many cute things to make, I feel like I blew an opportunity to spread some love around. Anyway, if you're looking to throw a little love my way, here are three ways you can do it:
1. Flowers – They don't have to be roses or a big bouquet. A single gerber daisy would do the trick. Whole Foods had the most amazing display of roses this week I stood for a few minutes just staring at them. The beautiful rich, deep orange and the ones with an alternative splash of color on the tips were my favorite.
2. Fannie May Trinidads – Hands down my favorite chocolate in a a box. I really like turtles, too. And the little Dove Dark Chocolates wrapped in red foil.
3. Cream Cheese Frosting – I think I had my first date with red velvet last weekend and what a lovely surprise to find out it's covered in my favorite frosting. Plus, the red velvet is RED so it's perfect for Valentine's. Making mini-cupcakes like this is not out of the question today, so if you live nearby, you might want to stop over tonight or tomorrow sometime.
