I love Valentine's Day. It's a very weird thing for me. If you know me, you know that I don't love a lot of things . . . especially anything that's a spectacle or a holiday. Working 5 years at a bakery and making sugar cookies in every holiday's special shape thousands of time over really sucks the holiday love right out of a person . . . but not Valentine's Day.
Valentine's Day has just always been very cheery and cute. I love the little valentines that kids hand out at school and EVERYONE is included. I love that my mom would always get my brothers and I sweet and thoughtful gifts (my first ever CD was a Valentine's gift -- Hanson!). And my friends have recently joined in, thoughtful as they are, buying me cute gifts to celebrate this holiday of love.
I just love it. And I love the people in my community that I get to do life with, and so I made them almond sugar cookies with the cutest mini heart sprinkles.
Embrace the commercialism. Accept the love. Make the cookies.
Happy Valentine's Day!
