A special Valentine's Day Tip
No shoes, No shirts, Lots of "Service"
Plan an indoor picnic with nothing but finger foods and the rule that you can't feed yourself. Feeding each other is very intimate, so plan a menu that fits the rules. I have a Pinterest board to get you started. What will be your desert? Mine at Valentine's Day is chocolate covered strawberries. Don't forget the whipped cream!

Before you take a look at all our favorite candy, Jillian Stone has sent us the perfect way to unwrap a Hershey's Kiss

CHOCOLATE LOVERS
Avril Tremayne, chocolate hearts, but they have to be wrapped in red foil or it's not happening!

Cindy Charity....hmmmm......I'm going to have to go with chocolates from Lindt (very yummy!)

    1. I agree. You could have a secret admirer that could be someone you don't know. If I had a secret admirer then I would rather it be someone I know.

    2. I don't like too much chocolate. Prefer white any time.

    3. I'm not crazy about chocolate myself. It has to be really good and have something else, like caramel. And like Angi, I LOVE white chocolate. But I'm actually more a fan of candy in general, like Whoppers, Reeses Pieces, and Whatchamacallit candy bars.

  11. Just plain chocolate is good for me, I'm not too picky when it comes to sweets. And although I don't have a valentine, my family did pretty well.
