Here’s a secret: I love Valentine’s Day. When I was little, we’d wake up on Valentine’s morning and my mother would have tiny gifts on our breakfast plates. They were always red or heart themed, I remember one pair of red leather gloves I loved to bits. She’d make heart shaped pancakes and send us on our way.
The last few Valentine’s have been pretty heart-broken for me, so I am excited for our plans for this one. Kevin & I have been together almost a year, and are headed North up the coast to driftwood beaches and hot springs for a 3 day weekend. We are going to camp, which is maybe a little overzealous and brave (or silly) in this wet weather. Anyone know fantastic b&bs betwen Mendocino & Gualala just in case??
For those of you who have no Miette to go to, here is a tiny Valentine mix. Maybe it will be a starter for making one of your own to give to your sweet?
So do you love Valentine’s day? For the kissyface part, or just for hearts and tiny cards?? Or is it just a terrible commercial holiday? Are you just in it for the chocolate?
