Valentine’s Day Classics

Ok, we don’t necessarily need one day in February to remind us how special our loved ones are – I mean every day we devour our little ones, right? – but it can be fun to take a day to celebrate just because.

Maybe you are planning a night out, a relaxing dinner at hope, or a party with everyone you care most about, or doing absolutely nothing. All of it sounds good to me.

There is just something special about prepping and making food with my husband. I’ve previously shared some fun and delicious drink, dessert and meal ideas right here.

And if you are looking for a special vday treat to bake up, I shared this yummy vegan Nutella recipe from Christie Matheson one year, and you can find a bunch more in the “Desserts” section of the Recipe Gallery.

A while back, Christopher surprised me with a partner yoga class and I found a favorite video of him and Bear playing together.

Wherever or whenever you celebrate your Valentine’s Day, I hope it is full of love and happiness.
