Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day from Annie!

Happy Valentine's Day from Mary and Dan!

Mary and Dan before devouring their Molten Chocolate Cakes
To celebrate Dan cooked me dinner at home - delicious falafel sandwiches, after dinner we headed out to see a play with friends then, back at home, I made molten chocolate cakes with raspberries for dessert. For my sweet Theatre students at Drury I baked up 70 sugar cookies.
Dan helped decorate these beauties
The students were kind enough to gift me with an adorable card and a box of chocolates! 

What a sweet surprise

My Boss's wife baked up some treats for Dan and me. I also got this hilarious valentine from one of my students:

Dan and I made each other valentines this year. The word play on his is quite clever.

After making Dan his valentine I was feeling creative and decided to enter the valentine-making competition at our neighborhood pastry shop, Elle's Patisserie.

And I won the competition! My prize is a $20 gift certificate to the shop! So, next time you're in Springfield a truffle, gelato or pastry of your choice is on me :-).

All in all, it was a pretty wonderful Valentine's Day! I am lucky to have many friends and family who I love.

Words of wisdom from my yogi: "You were made from love, to be loved, to spread love!" Share the love today and everyday.



  1. YOU ARE THE BEST VALENTINE! I love it-wish I had been there to make valentines with you:) xoxo

  2. Ah Mary, I have missed your blog! My computer lost you, and I didn't know where to find you. Well thank goodness I did. Love this 'lovely' post.
