As a child, Valentine’s Day was looked forward to – who could wish for more than a sugar cookie piled high with delicious buttercream frosting, and the sprinkles!!! Oh yes. Then growing up more, dating, getting engaged, married, etc. Valentine’s Day was special.
There are the years it lost its appeal for me, but it has come around again in a different way. Love evolves, and so do the treats I love to eat. I’d like to share a special, visually appealing treat from Oh Lady Cakes this Valentine’s Day. May the Joy of Friendship in its many varied forms be a blessing in your life today!
