Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all! I just adore any day where we get to openly celebrate loving one another. My heart feels so very full. To celebrate, I made my annual Valentine’s Day heart shaped cookies. Unfortunately Wednesdays are class nights, so the cookie baking didn’t begin until about 10:30 pm and concluded around 1:30 am (there were some other chores thrown in there too).

ImageHere’s part of my batch that I brought for work (with an appropriately printed George Washington Valentine’s card to boot).

ImageCongrats to all the lucky recipients of these bad boys. Including the man at Whole Foods who gave me a free bag of flour last night. You’ve got some cookies headed your way!

Looking forward to continuing my Valentine’s Day celebration tonight with my dear friend from home. Dinner, wine, maybe a little high school throw back with the OC – true Galentine’s day festivities. Can’t wait! Until then, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite gushy love songs. Apologies for the hipster-y side of me. I try to hide it when I can.

“Somebody Loved” – The Weepies


“Darling Divine” – Wild Child


“Thinking, Drinking, Sinking, Feeling” – Slow Club


Go give someone special a hug. So much love to you all!
