Yay!! It's Valentine's Day♡
In Japan, we do things a bit differently for Valentine's Day. Only the women give gifts to the men and the gifts generally consist of chocolate - just chocolate. Don't worry ladies, we certainly don't get the shaft on this one. Exactly one month later on March 14th, we celebrate White Day. This is the day that men have to pay us back. Three fold. We totally win!!
So, for Y's gift, I wrote him a little love letter and put it in a handmade felt heart envelope. I saw a tutorial for this a few days ago and thought it was so cute. I didn't use the exact template, just did one on my own.
I also baked Y some chocolate shortbread hearts using this recipe. They looked a bit boring, so I drizzled some white chocolate over the tops and voila! Instantly cuter!
Instead of the romantic route, I decided to be a bit goofy with dinner. I made a heart shaped pizza and salad with carrot hearts.
I also made one of Y's favorite chocolate cakes for dessert, but we've yet to cut it open. I'll post about it tomorrow with a recipe included!!
For myself, I made a little headband. I think it turned out really cute. I might make a few more in colors that I actually wear. I think they'd be great for every day.
Happy Valentine's Day!! I hope you have a great day with your loved ones!!
