Personal Note from Janine
When my husband and I first dated, I made him a homemade dinner with a yummy dessert. I invited him over for our first Valentine’s Day dinner.
And being a pretty unromantic guy, he had no idea it was Valentine’s Day.
After eating the dinner and opening presents, he piped up and said, why did you do all this? After that evening, let’s say he has never forgotten Valentine’s Day!
This year he mentioned that we should take a little trip somewhere. So, we’ll see if we can pull it off. Otherwise, I’ll make another Valentine’s dinner, and we will reminisce about our one that was a total disaster!
Luckily we both have a good sense of humor, and we laugh about that funny dinner.
I hope you have a fun holiday this year. I hope today’s post will inspire you to create a home full of pretty and fun Valentine’s decor.

After years of trying to create cute trees out of branches, I finally found a few key things when choosing your stems.
This Easy Pink Rose Wreath is natural, dainty, and pretty. It only takes a few minutes to create, and it’s pretty inexpensive.
The results are a homemade romantic rose wreath that looks gorgeous on a windowpane, wall, door, or mantel.
This family favorite Rolled Sugar Cookie Recipe is thin, crispy, and tastes great frosted or plain. My husband grew up with a cookie and loves how it tastes and how easy it is to cut out.
Make them for holidays, special occasions, and eat them plain or add frosting.
First of all, what is a Breakable Chocolate Heart? It’s a heart-shaped chocolate mold that you break to see what is inside!

This Week’s Tip – Pasta Maker
If you plan to make pasta for your Valentine’s Day dinner, try making homemade pasta.
I bought this Kitchen Aid pasta attachment, and I love it. It has an attachment for rolling the pasta into a sheet and three other attachments for noodles.
Once you make homemade pasta, you’ll never buy the dry kind again. The taste of fresh noodles is fantastic!
Latest Obsession – Gluten-Free Baking
My latest obsession is trying to bake gluten-free. I made these tasty brownies, which taste like regular flour brownies. If you add enough fat and sugar to anything, it will taste yummy.
But I did try making a gluten-free almond cookie the other day. It tasted great but needed to be more fluffy. So it’s back to the drawing board on that cookie.
My daughter is trying her best to be on a gluten-free diet, so it has inspired me to bake gluten-free.
So, I’ll share more recipes that don’t have wheat!
Thanks for checking out this post about Valentine’s Day inspiration!
I had so much fun putting this post together that I am even more excited than ever for February.
I hope you’re all having a relaxing weekend, my friends. Stay tuned to the blog for more fun blog posts 🙂
Have a great day,
