I am growing to love valentine's day more and more as I get older. I have ignored the commercialisation and present side of it, and have been embracing the love and sharing side. This year baby boy and I made sugar cookies to share with work and kindy friends- I knew it was a success when we got a write up in the 'What we did today' section of his class kindy book :-) I also woke up on valentine's morning to a pathway of cut out hearts down the hallway-ending in a love note and turkish delight chocolate. (my other half leaves for work before I wake up). It was a beautiful day that we shared with family and friends. No expensive gifts needed.
My sugar cookie recipe was from the 'Lion House Classics Cookbook'. I have a great memory of eating there with my mum and dad on my very first visit to Salt Lake City. I found an online version of the recipe here.
