a nod to valentine’s day.

I’ll be honest, until a few years ago, I hated the day.

I had many bad Valentine’s days, so I have had my fair share and now deserve to have fun with it and enjoy it.

In retrospect, I should I have just looked at those days as a good excuse to eat yummy sweets with my friends.

So now I have my own sweetie and it is always special, regardless of the budget.

Last year I made some yummy chocolate cupcakes with amazing chocolate icing from scratch, and it was so good in fact that I had too many slicks in the process and made myself sick! Word to the wise, limit your chocolate icing slicks!

It is worth the wait!

Here are some fun ideas I have run across.

Here’s and idea from Twig & Thistle with a tutorial on printing from your own printer. Nice!
