I am NOT a hopeless romantic…

But I am excited for Valentine’s Day.  It’s so silly, but I really love all the fun, food, hearts, and whimsy associated with Valentine’s Day.  It always gives me an excuse to create something in the kitchen or craft room.  Last year I had a ton of fun creating these Dainty Envelope Fruit Tarts.  Serving them and eating them…. was even more fun!

I love these so much… I’m going to give you permission to make some now!  Why even wait until Valentine’s Day?

It’s another chilly day in my neck of the woods.  But, it’s not going to last forever.  I might have been seen doing the dance of joy after checking the long-range forecast today.  We were in the low teens today…. but tomorrow and on through February… we won’t see those temps again!  Okay… we might at night… but the daily highs were all listed in the 20’s-40’s.  I think this might be the best winter ever!

I hope your week is already off to an extraordinary start!
Thanks for coming by!

I’m so glad you’re here….
