A Love Affair with Hearts

If you LOVE Valentines Day, you will LOVE this post because it’s all about hearts.  Rosy, plump, pretty hearts that are full of glorious love and affection.  There are many ways to use hearts this February 14th to show your loved ones how much they mean to you.  You can serve them up at meals, gift them, stitch them and fill them.  Bake a beautiful dessert in the shape of love.  Sprinkle them, dip them, hang them or wear them and share them.  The possibilities are endless.  The best part about celebrating Valentines Day with hearts is that you don’t have to throw a party or style an event to use them every which way you can.  Just be inspired to tuck some love away in all the little things you do.  Create it. Bake it. Write it. Show it.  Use big hearts, little hearts and hearts that melt in your mouth.  Be inspired to decorate your world with LOVE and shower your special someone with a mega dose of hearts this Valentines Day.
