Valentine's day

Although I believe that love is something that should be celebrated during the entire year, on Valentine's I like spending the day with my better half, but without all the commercial craze. So, this year, in addition to cooking a fancy meal, I made heart shaped sugar cookies...

...and received these lovely red roses!

Not bad at all!
