Valentine’s Day is almost here! Don’t worry about roses and store-bought chocolates, or set-menu deals at crowded restaurants. Give your beloved(s) something straight from your kitchen. The way to their hearts is through their tastebuds: it worked for me!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year? Chris and I are celebrating in our own style. On Saturday we are going for a couple’s massage, then we are seeing an afternoon screening of Deadpool, and capping off with pizza and wine on the couch. On Sunday (actual V-Day) we are heading out to a theme park with my family for a day of rollercoasters, ice cream and fun!
