Hot chocolate with a touch of  love

This looks so sweet and is so easy. All you do is grab a heart shaped cookie cutter, put it on a baking sheet or plate lined with parchment paper. Spoon cool whip into the cookie cutter and freeze. Once frozen pop out the heart and float it on top of your hot cocoa. My sons loved this treat and now want floating cool whip shapes every time we have hot cocoa.

Valentine Writing Paper

valentine writing paper

I remember when my husband and I first started dating. I would sit and write his name and mine. I would doodle on my paper all of the things we had done together. I was supposed to be paying attention to a college lecture but my mind was on him. I decided to make stationary. I created Valentine Writing Paper. I made our own stationary.

You will need the following items:

Paper

Pen

colored markers or colored pencils if you want to make colored stationary. (I did black and white)

A printer that copies or a copy machine

You will begin to write down things like:

When you met

nick names

favorite foods

first kiss location

First dance

Best memory

funniest story

You will document your love story on a piece of paper as an outline.
