Growing up, I always loved this holiday as my parents always gave my brother and I gifts and there was tons of chocolate. They made a big deal about loving us. What a blessing that was to me and I am so thankful for being given an "others focused" perspective on this holiday.
I have been having fun planning these cute little candy boxes for our family's Valentine dinner! I want my kids to have a part of Valentines day and I know they will get a kick out of opening (or squishing) these!
I used my silhouette machine to cut these out and filled them with gold chocolate and caramel candies. I am planning on putting animal crackers in my one year old's box. :)
It also was a great opportunity to practice with the macro setting on my new camera. I have really had to practice standing still! It is crazy how much happier I am with my photos now that I have been focusing on that! ha ha!
