Love Is In The Air

"That love is all there is
Is all we know of love" Emily Dickinson

The wonderful thing about Valentines Day is that the smallest of gestures can make the day so special. A hand-written note with a "little something" can make our day. I gave up on fancy dinners in crowded restaurants ages ago in favor of sushi in our favorite little place with our daughter and finally found a Valentines Day tradition I can remember forever.

For all the other Valentines in our lives -- the friends, kids' teachers, sisters and mothers here are a few "little somethings" that will brighten up their day without breaking the bank.
Delish Gourmet Bath Bakery

Sm: $3
These delightful cupcakes are one of our most popular gifts and are the perfect gift for Valentines Day. Just drop in the bath for a fragrant & foamy experience. Choose from Sweetie Pie (with hearts!) Lemon Fluff, Oh Honey, Fruit Sorbet, Creamy Vanilla & Cotton Candy.
