They say that food is the way to anyone’s heart and if you are anything like us, we are more into treats made with love as opposed to expensive flowers, candy, heart-shaped things and dinner reservations.
Valentine’s Day can easily be confused with these costly things and dismissed by those who don’t have a partner, but the beauty about this day is whether you are single, dating, married or have kids, you can share the love with all of those surrounding. Friends, family or even just Y-O-U.
Whatever you choose, do it with love, because giving is a powerful thing! This year we are getting into the kitchen with Hugo and making these cute ‘Heart Drops’ to send out as love bombs to the ones that we love.
So, before you head out to buy sugar-filled Valentine’s treats this year, why not try making your own, filled with love!
