Valentine’s Day

victorian-valentines-two-cherubs-roses-and-heartSo we have a week before chocolate finds it’s way into our home and our palates! I asked my husband to please not bring home chocolates this year I’m trying so hard not give up on the diet, It’s Thursday and I’ve started the regime four times this week alone! I know, my track record doesn’t seem promising but I’m hanging in there!

So, the “Love of my life” asked ….”If no candy then what?”…….hmmmmm, well I guess I need to leave him a few clues…..

First there is Chocolate that I could have tons of and never break with my diet! Chocolate diamonds!

And what about flowers? Well, roses are the most beautiful flower….but bouquets are expensive and after several days they fade and die; why not buy her several plants that the two of you can plant together in the Spring.  Now your garden will be a constant memory of a very special day back when snow covered the ground!
