Valentine's Day...

Happy Valentine's Day!!!! I hope you have a happy day wherever you are and either you celebrate it or not. We grew up with Valentine's Day around, but it was called "Día del amor y la amistad" which means "Love and friendship day".... I remember in highschool the senior class would dress up and sell roses and treats like brownies or cookies to make money for their graduation. I loved our senior year when my friends wore suits and gave us roses... they looked so nice and it was a fun thing to do.

Now, we don't really celebrate, but as EVERYWHERE is full of red things and hearts I get in the spirit... So I've made a couple of presents for MG.
Starting February I made chocolate buttermilk cupcakes covered with ganache...
Heaven of chocolate!!! although he's not fan of the frostings... but he can be very very happy with the cupcake just as it is in the picture... without any frosting, filling or decoration.

MG usually reads the news in his laptop after taking a shower and before doing/having breakfast, so today I woke up when he was in the shower and went to his laptop and put on top my present accompanied by a rose...
It's a little notebook, handmade with scrapbook papers, red, with hearts, kisses, love phrases, etc... and letter stickers. The cover reads "Why I love you from A to Z"... So I did a page for each letter and 26 reasons why I love him. It was fun to do and more difficult to come up with something for each letter than you may think!!!
But I had a great time doing it and over all it was great that he loved it...
After puting it in place, I went back to bed, so after he was ready and went to read the news and he saw it, I could hear him gasp from my bed... it was sweet...
I'll just tell you he loved it, he enjoyed every page of it and most important he felt LOVED!!!! which was the point of all of it... doesn't matter that is V-Day.... I would have done it anyway just to tell him in a different way how much I love him...

Then we had French toast for breakfast!!!
Delicious!!!!! cream cheese, strawberries and coffee... perfect!
And woke up to winter.... finally!

see you soon!!
