As much as I like chocolates, presents and flowers, I'm not a huge fan of Valentines day. But, something niggles at me every time it comes around. I start to feel the pressure of society to do something, if I don't, I feel guilty, which I hate having as my motivation to do something for the man I love. I would rather get or give a gift on a different day of the year, just because Joel thought of me, and wanted to do something special for me, not because of the date on a calendar. Still, that feeling that you missed out because everyone else got something special starts to make you wonder why you didn't get anything. It is so lame!!!
Saying all that, for the last few Valentines Days I have baked. I know that my husband really likes sweets and baked goods, and I almost never make things like that, as I have more of a savoury craving.
I have some old heart shaped cake tins from my Nanna, and so I like to use Valentines day as an excuse to use them.
Today was my first experience baking with a toddler (usually I do it while he's asleep). But, I thought it would be nice if we did it together, and so I let him
I hope you had a lovely Valentines day with your love, your friends, your family and whoever makes you feel good about yourself, because I think that is the real point of the day, to let the people around you know that you love and appreciate them.
The last picture is my gift from Joel, because I kept complaining he buys them for all the people he does presentations at work for, and never for me!!
