Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it! Do you guys have fun plans? I’m not sure what we’re going to do yet. I really love Valentines Day because of what it means for Brett and I. Back when I was in college Brett called me on Valentines Day and asked me to be his Valentine. We had previously dated, but nothing too serious. In fact, to make a long story short, I was sort of a brat to him the first time around and we hadn’t talked in a while. I was so excited that he had called me and instantly agreed to be his Valentine. I was going to school in Utah and he was living in Las Vegas so we met in the middle. (Actually, I drove 45 minutes and he drove 2 hours. 😉) I waited in the parking lot for about 15 minutes, and was starting to think maybe he was finishing up a date with someone else first. (LOL) He had actually stopped to buy me roses! Shortly after that, we started dating pretty seriously and the rest is history. I’m so glad he asked me to be his Valentine that day!
Every Valentines Day I make these homemade chocolate kisses. They are so easy to make, and they always turn out adorable. We typically go on a fun date together, and Brett usually gets me something thoughtful like a piece of jewelry. I’m the kind of person who loves a practical piece of jewelry that I can wear all the time. I’m loving this Helen Ficalora XOX Valentines Day necklace, and today I’m teaming up with them to give one away to one of my readers! It is a $125 value, and it is the perfect dainty accessory that you can wear day in and day out with any outfit. This is my first Helen Ficalora necklace, and I’m HOOKED.
