Happy (late) Valentine's Day to everyone in blogland!
I was pleasantly surprised when I received some flowers from my parents! Some miniature roses and whitish-yellow lilies (they hadn't bloomed yet in the photograph.
A few days before Valentine's Day, I attempted to make some 'lacy chocolate hearts' to 'place daintily on little cupcakes.' In the Martha Stewart Living magazine, there was this really fantastic looking cupcake with a little chocolate heart on top. It looked relatively simple, so I decided to try it.
They worked relatively well, except that they began to melt after they were taken out of the fridge. There was a lot left over, so a made a ginormous chocolate heart!
This year for Valentine cards, I took some photographs of little plastic animals.
For my monkey/chimpanzee/gorilla loving little brother.
For my mom.
For my actually 'lego loving' brother, but he likes polar bears too.
For my 'used to want to be a herpetologist' brother.
For my dad.
Hope everyone had a day filled with Valentine Sweets!
