Valentine's Day Recap

2012.2 Valentines Cookies (1 of 1)

Valentine's Day is one of those holidays I usually dread (being chronically single may influence my opinion.) But this year wasn't so bad. After sleeping in and getting a little work done, I hit the stores (along with half the men in the city) to pick up a little something for my niece and nephew. I then spent a couple of hours playing with them (one of the biggest benefits of finally being home is being able to spend a bit of time with them each day.) Then the day was capped off with another personal favorite - homemade Valentine's cookies (it's official, I have the best neighbors in the world.)

By the end of the day, I was ready to admit that Valentine's Day doesn't have to be a day to dread.

How did you celebrate?

Have you heard First Aid Kit yet? Check out their Emmylou or The Lion's Roar - both have been on heavy rotation at my house this week.

Hi Jamie,
Sounds like you had a wonderful Valentine's Day filled with love! Mine involved flowers, chocolate, and love.... all of my favorite things :)
Glad to hear that you made it home safely!
Enjoy the rest of the week!

Oh wow! Those biscuits (cookies!) look wonderful you lucky girl. And I went straight over to iTunes and bought First Aid Kit's album - brilliant. I also bought their version of Universal Soldier - how depressing that they were able to bring the list of conflicts up to date with no problem at all!

Sounds like a bunch of fun to me. In my house, we watched hockey, cuddled with the kiddies and ate cookie snacks.

sounds like a great day with loved ones.

I spent it working except for lunch with hubby then I was at a rubber stamp class with a bunch of girlfriends.

Hi Jamie; VD, to me, is overrated. My hubby treats me like every day is VD... lucky me. That being said we went shopping all day which turned out to be a headache and we got caught in a heck of a hail/rain storm. ugh!

Those cookies looks so good. I did not bake any by purpose because I'm a cookie monster and will eat them all in one day. The hips don't need that.

Take care.
