Valentine's Day is one of my most favorite memories. I loved Valentine's day parties at school. The thrill of making your “mailbox” for all your valentine's from your friends. Our school had a carnation sale, to raise money for something or another, and I loved buying a carnation for my best friends. Even the nervousness of not knowing if you are going to get a carnation or not. So much fun!

My love language is gift giving and being frugal, all at once. It's a conundrum! If i don't make a gift like my Valentine's Day peppermint bark recipe, then I will be buying a meaningful and fun gift. A store I love to check out and order from is Jane.com.
