happy valentine's day!
i've never really been a fan of valentine's day, but for some odd reason over the last few years i've slowly grown into maybe recognizing it. not a whole lot, just a teeny tiny bit. my thing is, i don't need any fancy flowers or box(es) of chocolates. just say happy valentine's day and that you love me and cannot picture your life without me because i am so awesome and things just wouldn't be as awesome if i wasn't part of it. hahahahaha.. yeah, sure, something like that.
so did my person recognize today's over-commercialized holiday? yup! he got me a nice box of see's candies (i've grown to liking them bit by bit these days as i'm usually the one giving those out during holidays) and some yummy peppered jerky. yes, i love my beef jerky. i say this year's v-day is so far, so good. no complaints here.
well, it's not too late if you haven't done anything today. the day is still young! hey, you can even bake these yummy mini cupcakes and give them away as little gifts or have them at your dinner (party or not) tonight (or any other time is fine too). you can find the recipe for these mini chocolate cupcakes with ganache here. i just topped them off with the ever-so-festive valentine sprinkles. :)
