Happy almost Valentine's Day! Are you celebrating this year? I tend to forgo the focus on romantic love and go for a more inclusive attitude. I think Valentine's Day should celebrate all kinds of love! I'll probably call my mom and my best friend, and Mr. Baird and I will watch Netflix or Animal Planet with the pugs. And you know what? That will be a perfect Valentine's Day for me.
One thing that I never skip on Valentine's Day is chocolate (no surprise there!). I recently whipped up a batch of Grand Marnier truffles for the Better Homes and Gardens blog. They are so easy to make and a lovely homespun gift for your Valentine (or yourself). Click over for the how-to and printable recipe!
