Valentine’s Day is traditionally the holiday of flowers and chocolate. I see Valentine’s Day as kind of the fail safe holiday for men. It’s the idiot’s reminder to pamper the one they love. I’d much rather be thought of on a day that you haven’t been reminded to think of me at every turn. It is so much more meaningful. And I’m so thankful my husband knows this.
And how does he know? Because he asked me! And that’s the most important piece of advice, guys…ask your lady what she’d like. When my sister’s husband asked if she wanted flowers on V-Day her frugal response was, “Are you kidding me?! Flowers cost twice as much on Valentine’s Day!”
Flowers or no flowers, if you’re looking for a decadent chocolate recipe, I’ve got you covered.
