Valentine’s Day Wrap Up

Valentine’s Day Treat Wrap Up

Love it or hate it, today is Valentine’s Day. I have always loved Valentine’s Day. I don’t know what it is about this holiday. It is funny, when my husband and I got married he looked at me dumb founded when he found out how much I love Mr. Valentine. He said to me, “You do not seem like the kind of girl who would like Valentine’s Day.” Well, surprise, surprise I do! The more I think about who doesn’t love to hear that they are loved. Better yet, I love to tell people I love them. Before there was ever a boy, I had parents who made me special Valentine’s every year. I love sending fun treats and notes to those I love. One of the fun things that I get to experience while making desserts is to see everyone’s style. From classic to modern. From romantic to silly. From weird to cute.

Cupcake Cookie Cutter

 Some people love a classic Valentine’s Day Gift.

Hugs and Kisses. Flowers. Chocolates.


 Some people like Valentine’s Day gifts that are classic, with a modern twist.

There must be hearts and there must be chevron.

That is love for some.

Valentines Day Cookies

Then there are the Valentine’s for kiddos.

This one has me smitten.

The Love Train.

Have fun humming the song the rest of the day.


Then there are the romantics.

You know their eyes are all googly and I am pretty sure they are watching

Pride and Prejudice today.

They seem to walk on air every where they go.

Valentine's Day Treats

Then there are the dreamers.

The kind who like to think outside the normal paradigm.

Love comes in all different colors for them.

Valentine's Day Treats

While others dream and others are romantic….

You have the kind of lovers who say let’s get down to business.

The sweet and salty is their love affair.

It doesn’t have to be pretty, they just need their fix.

Valentine's Day Treats

Then there are man desserts. Yup, that is right. There are some desserts that men just love.

I have found brownies can make a man fall in love.

Well maybe that is an overstatement. Do I have to put a disclaimer?

{Nah, it’s my blog, right?}

Valentine's Day Treats

Then there are those whose love language is CAKE!

Cake speaks to them in a way no one else can.

Cake understands them.

Cake never lets them down.

I am pretty sure Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream never

let anyone down.

Valentine's Day Treats

And then there is my kind of love.

Quirky? Yup, the kind that makes you laugh out loud.

I have a man who believes nothing says love like a worn pair of socks.

They love you even more if they have holes.

{I am not joking}

Then there is me. I love crisp, white, comfy socks.

The kind with cushion, that make feet happy.

Holes are not air conditioning.

But the man I love thinks they are the best.

So to celebrate Valentine’s Day, instead of throwing his favorite pair in the trash,

I made some “hole ridden”socks with cookies.

I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Valentine’s Day too!
