Spread the Love!

I bet that y'all will be super happy when Valentine's Day is over so that I will stop posting about it.  Buttt, until then- here's a little post about ways to spread the love to those around you!

When I was in college, one of my best friends and I stayed up late one night to bake Valentine's Day cupcakes for a sorority bake sale.  No one touched them, so we dropped them off at the fraternity house.  Let me tell you - we were the belles of the ball that night!  The guys were so happy that someone had thought of them, and I may or may not have gotten a date out of it ;)

Last year, I made homemade Valentines for all of my co-workers!  It was so much work, but so much fun.  This year, we have lots of new employees, so I'll probably just be corny and through a kid's valentine in their mailbox.

Here are some ideas for easy ways to spread the love - whether it just be at home with your parents, for your sorority house, or for your co-workers!  I think the biggest thing about Valentine's Day is letting people around you know that they're important to you!



  BAKE:
Baked goods are a simple and yummy way to celebrate!  I am currently debating between making these yummy Red Velvet Cookie Cups and these S'mores Bites!  (P.S. - This Betty Crocker cake mix is what was such a hit when we were baking for the boys!)

MAKE:
I've been dying to make these wine gummies!  Our potlucks at work get a little wild, and I could see these being such a hit!  And what better snack to enjoy while spending Galentine's with your sisters?

TAKE...the time to:
Craft homemade valentines!  It may be a little pain in the rear, but you have no idea how much they are appreciated!  I took pieces of red card stock, wrote a note on them, folded them, then tied them with tulle.  It was a really good opportunity for me to take inventory about what traits I truly appreciated about my co-workers.  If you're looking for something simple, I love this idea - Peppermint Patty candy with "You're cool." on a paper heart!  


Are you doing anything special for the special people in your life this year?  I'd love to hear about it!! Happy Wednesday :)

XX,
