Happy Valentine’s Day. The rain is coming down in sheets. It feels like the perfect day to call in sick, curl up with a loved one, watch movies and eat deliciously rich dark chocolate under a big cozy blanket.
I have always liked Valentine’s Day, especially as a little girl. I recall a particular photo of myself on Valentine’s Day dressed head to toe in red, holding an oversized bunch of heart balloons for my fellow kindergarteners. I have toned it down a bit since then but still enjoy baking up a batch of cookies or making someone their favourite meal on Valentine’s Day.
What is not to love about a day filled with chocolate, hearts and love? I know it can be cheesy and a bit of a money grab but in all honesty who doesn’t need a little more love or a really good piece of chocolate, especially in February?
