I’m one of those rare people who gets really jazzed for Valentine’s Day. I love it. I’m not saying I have to get flowers and go out to a fancy dinner, but I love the little things about the holiday. I love the candy + treats that surround it, obv… and I’m all about the cutesy decorations that are everywhere, the sweet cards and the excuse to watch a sappy love movie.
My mom always gave my siblings and I little gifts for Valentine’s Day (and she still does! The heart platter in the last photo is from her this year) and that always made the day extra special. I look forward to doing the same… one day. For now I’ll enjoy baking all the sweets and dishing them up to Mark and anyone else who comes near me.
So in honor of one of my favorite holidays, I baked up something special this past weekend and it may be a new favorite!
