Say I Love You with Valentine’s Day Macarons
In one of my Daily Inspirations post for January, I talked about a semi-cringe-worthy Valentine’s Day card I chose specifically for my grade school crush. It’s so silly that it makes me laugh out loud every time I think about it. Oh, if only I could find a card like that and give it to my forever Valentine today. In the absence of such a card, let’s just bake sweet macarons for the loved ones in our lives.
For the longest time, I thought that Valentine’s Day in my adult life was meant to be celebrated with the person I was romantically involved with. It was only until I started to receive little tokens of love from friends, colleagues and children that I started to consider it a somewhat inclusive holiday. It’s a day that you can use to show others your appreciation and love. Well, that’s what the chocolate and flower companies want us to believe right? The more people we can get in on the retail action, the better 🙂 I think Bill Maher said it best: “It’s the one day when the whole country is telling you to buy flowers.” Instead of flowers this year, maybe you can try your hand at making this sweet treat from the heart. I made this Ultimate Guide to Making Valentine’s Macarons for you. I hope it will help you get started and offer you some V-day inspiration.
Wishing you a lot of love, hugs and kisses this V-day… and oh, flowers… we can’t forget flowers, can we now? 🙂
