I can feel Valentine’s Day creeping up just around the corner.. Eek! Only 7 days left until Valentine’s Day! I’m not gonna lie– I’m a fan of this holiday. Sorry to the ones that aren’t a fan, but all the pink/red and hearts popping up in stores bring me such joy. I love all the heart shaped desserts, the cheesy cards, and the beautiful flowers. Desserts, as you may have guessed, are at the top of my list. I think that Valentine’s Day brings out the cutest desserts that you find all year. I love scrapbooking cards for this holiday, too. Let me know if you would like a Valentines Day card sent directly to you! I love sending and recieving snail mail. Leave a comment here or send me an email at email@example.com with your mailing address and I’d be more than happy to send you a homemade card. Who knows, maybe a homemade card will make your Valentine’s Day this year THAT much better.
I was contacted by See’s Candies last week to sample and review some of their chocolates, and they sent me a pound’s worth of chocolate! Lucky me! I was so excited to open the package (who am I kidding, I always love opening packages), and was delighted when I saw the bright red, heart-shaped box. I wasn’t expecting something so cute! After I finally got over the cuteness and opened the box, I soon found out that the contents were just as appealing.
I slowly tried one, two, three pieces and loved all of them. Like Tom Hanks says in Forrest Gump, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” Usually with assortment boxes, I take a bite of each one (because I have no idea what’s inside of them) and throw out the ones I don’t like. In this case, I haven’t thrown out a single chocolate. This assortment had many with caramel, my favorite! The one pictures above is a milk chocolate with a caramel center. I am also a huge fan of the molasses chips from See’s– they’re especially addicting. If you haven’t gotten a gift for you significant other yet this Valentine’s Day, I’d totally go for the Valentine’s Day heart shaped chocolate gift boxes from See’s! The presentation, quality, and idea is impressive and it will be sure to leave an imprint in your lover’s heart. Oops, there goes the cheesiness again. Sorry, I just can’t help it! I mean, who can ever turn away chocolate? It’s always sure to please.
