Chocolate Hearts (Valentine’s Day)

Happy Valentine’s to those who have a special one to spend the day with, but also to those who don’t have a better half in their lives yet! Today is the day to say “I love you” to whoever matters in your life. For me Valentine’s day is more than just a “couple” thing, it’s an occasion to remind those in your life what they mean to you!
