I have a love/hate relationship with Valentines day. I love it because it’s pink and frilly and full of hearts and love and gooey, gushy things. But in the same breath, I could really care less about the whole standard “holiday” greeting card, flowers, chocolate thing. I would much rather move onto more important things like my birthday and Mother’s Day. ♥
But with that being said, I love planning me a party! And so, instantly the gooey, gushy holiday becomes my friend. I’m not so into the decorating part, but I love the food part. Raspberries, chocolate, whipping cream and strawberries. Romantic fizzy drinks and heart shaped anything.
I’m not going to go into as much detail as I usually would, since V-day is over and I’m sure nobody cares that much, but if you’ve got a question please feel free to leave a comment. ♥
Our yummy dinner, pizza bread with heart shaped peperonis.
The cupcakes were a vanilla cake with pink buttercream frosting, topped with chocolate whipped cream and a fresh strawberry, drizzled with milk chocolate. (okay, not drizzled, but globbed with chocolate)
My huge pile of Valentines from the children. I am so loved! ♥
I wrote each of the kids love letters this year. Something that I hope they will treasure and really take to heart, because I meant every word.
And that was our dinner. And Darren, even though I told him not to get me anything, had gone out to get something and when he got back I was upset that I forgot to tell him to get me a disposable icing bag for my cupcakes. Well, how’s this for coincidence… guess what he got me for Valentines day? A re-useable fancy icing bag and coupler. Such a smart hubby I have.
Hope your day was mushy, gushy and full of love. ♥ ♥ ♥
