Shh, don’t tell anyone …



… but I’m working on baking my sweetheart some heart shaped biscuits for Valentine’s Day.  You see, we kind of used up our savings last year pursuing one of our dreams and whilst it was one of the best things we’ve done together as a couple, it also means we need to be a little more discerning with where our money goes these days.  We’re also saving for a little overseas jaunt later this year, so we’ve decided that until we’re back on track, no more pressies.  Know what I mean?


that's amore!


But that doesn’t mean that Valentine’s Day needs to be boring.  It just means I need to get a little more creative.  So I’ve decided to bake him some biscuits.  He’s quite partial to Italian food, especially Sicilian desserts, that being his background and all.  And eating his way around the regions of Italy was definitely the highlight of 2011 for him.  So I’m going to turn the traditional Baci d’Alassio premix into some heart shaped baci biscuits.   What better way to combine some of his favourite foods and the 14th Feb than with a box of baci di cuore (‘heart shaped kisses’)?!


I’m not sure if my sweetheart will be thinking as creatively as me with the whole “let’s not spend money on presents thing this year” but that’s ok, as long as he remembers to tell me he loves me, I will still be a happy girl.  And I definitely don’t want him to be tit for tat, and think he has to reciprocate with a gift, so shh, don’t tell anyone that I’m baking for him this valentine’s day!!

Love, your Angel,
