Valentine’s Day Goodies

Let’s celebrate being with loved ones which doesn’t just include your significant other – friends and family too!  If your friends (or couple friends) are willing, host a fun dinner evening with food, games, or a movie.  I’m honestly not that into Valentine’s Day except for a yummy menu and special goodies!  

Get your loved ones a twist on the traditional chocolates and flowers.  Arrange a variety of different chocolate treats to mix it up.  Add in healthy fruits like strawberries and raspberries.  Then instead of real flowers, get a beautiful bouquet of fake flowers…yes fake (my favorite)!  They last longer, never dies, you can display them whenever you want, and can create a great centerpiece.  Or a bouquet of beautiful greenery + flowers! 

Or if you’re me all you want are French macarons and wine!!
