Happy Valentine's Day!

Wishing everyone a day full of love and sweetness. My husband and I will celebrate at home tonight. I'll make a nice dinner and cook some of his favorite foods -- homemade tomato bolognese sauce with pasta, meatballs & sausages, roasted vegetables, and a cherry cheese pie. He already gave me my Valentine's Day gift, by buying me one of my favorite things -- books from my Amazon.com wish list!

To celebrate today, here is a compilation of goodies to enjoy:

A nice history of St.Valentine's Day can be found on Old Fashioned Living

An abundance of Valentine sweets recipes and craft ideas here:
