Keeping It Simple on Valentine's Day

Young or old, many are making plans to honor a sweetie on Valentine's Day this year. According to the U.S. Greeting Card Association, about 190 million Valentine cards will be sent out this year in the U.S. alone, and if the ones exchanged in school are included that number goes up to 1 billion cards. Should you happen to have a child in school who will be receiving a stack of those cards, you know it's time to get the Valentine's box ready. Maybe your young one would like a shark box or a Lego box to collect those cards in this year.

Many sweethearts will be receiving flowers, jewelry, or candy from a significant other on Valentine's Day. A more home-baked way to show your love might be with a Chocolate Cherry Torte. A batch of pretty cookies could also show someone how much you care, so how about baking up some Butter Cookies, Decorated Sugar Cookies, or Dipped Chocolate Chip Heart Cookies for that someone special. 

I think everyone enjoys being remembered on holidays like Valentine's Day. Perhaps one of these simple projects will help you express your love in a personal and memorable way.

  1. Great ideas! I wish I lived closer to my one grandson as I would make him that shark box...he just told me he loves sharks.
