Valentine's Day is coming up! Ok, let me be honest here. I'm married, I have a toddler and my husband and I are not the romantic type of couple. In the 8 years that we've been together, I don't think that we've celebrated this holiday once.
However, I'm always looking for an excuse to eat chocolate <3

This is probably the easiest fancy looking dessert that you can do. With two or three ingredients, there's no excuse for not having a Valentine's Day dessert.

Ooh, chocolate strawberries always look so delicious. These ones especially so! My boyfriend and I never really bother with Valentines day. My brother is coming for a visit at the same time this year so it's definitely not going to be romantic!

I thought I was the only married woman who hasn't celebrated valentines since getting married ^^

Great job with these..they look lovely..:heart:

Well, as you mentioned, it is a bit hard to get all romantic with kids around :D
..I'm surprised with how long we've been married...not with why, but with how quick it's gone! ^^

Still, it's going to be a bit more quite by September. My sons going to Uni, and my daughter works in London all week with my husband, so there will only be 3 at home.

finally! last year my husbands work colleagues made him buy me a present (a chocolate recipe book) after making him feel guilty that we don't do anything for it but we are not romantic at all, never have been really.

I don't need to have gifts from my husband to know that he loves me. We're soul mates and that's been clear to us since the first time we met. Also, he's an amazing husband and father, he takes care of us everyday. For me, that's true love :heart:.

But I certainly wouldn't mind having a chocolate recipe book!

:giggle: I know what you mean, it's nice how things balance out in relationships too. i am the ultimate worrier, he is the voice of reason, he has no common sense at all, i have it all, he is rubbish with money and can;t save a penny, all I do is save!
