Why I Love the Holidays: Yummy Valentine’s Day Foods and Snacks

I love holidays. Just about any holiday will do. Yes, I’m a bit of a sucker for the so-called “made-up” Hallmark holidays too, but for me, I love the thought of a theme and all the fun things you can do to make it memorable.

So Valentine’s Day is no exception. Whether it’s sharing love for a significant other, your children or just someone special in your life, why not say “I Love You” with one of these fun food treats. Some of them are even good for you. The big day is a little less than a week away so hopefully you’ll be inspired to get something together.

Here are some of my favorites that I found browsing the web and (mostly) Pinterest (which, by the way, you don’t need to have an account to browse!)

Why not send an all natural Valentine this year? These stickers should do the trick!
