Happy Valentines Day

Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love endures all.

Happy Valentines Day. We celebrate February 14 in many different ways. But what ever way you celebrate the day of love, remember to show it all year long, Not just today.

I made today special for my husband with a  heart cake baked by moi. Which was for me too! A one layer box mix white cake with  icing from a can with powered sugar mixed in it to make it thicker and tinted with pink food coloring.

Then there was the Valentine lunch, which was a week prior to Valentines's Day.


        And we shared
         it  at Joe's Crab
        You have to get
        crabs at a place
       called  Joe's  Crab

Husband did. I got  shrimp stuffed with crawfish. Nice and tasty. And a much needed get away.

And for valentine gifts to our kids and their families what better way to say Happy Valentines Day  than a cute Valentines Day Card. Like when they were school age and bought cute little valentine cards in a box to give out to the whole class and get one in return from each classmate. Except the one I give them gets delivered to their mailbox at their house with cash in it for their little family. That's a nice valentine.

And to my family a little Hi, love you card in the mail. It may or may not reach them on time. But, remember you should treat everyday like Valentines Day.

My own little Valentine treat to myself from myself. I start buying these as soon as they go on the store shelves and I keep enough in my own stock to eat until the Easter candy comes out!

And special goodies for my two little Valentines.

I guess I am a Cupid!
