Who’s ready for Valentine’s Day?! {Raising hand emoji}

What I’m not ready for is all the sugar I have coming my way this weekend, because let me be honest for a minute. Right now (in pregnant state) I can hardly control myself around sweets. #Struggles

So, husband, if you’re reading this, just send me some oranges, apples, or bananas…maybe covered in chocolate. 😉

When the candy aisles start filling with Valentine’s candy on December 26th, you may feel like you shouldn’t consume one more ounce of candy come Valentine’s Day.

Orange You Glad We’re Friends

These mini oranges are in every kid’s lunchbox these days. Wrap one or two up in a clear treat/favor bag, tie with a ribbon, and add a cute note. Another Option: “You’re A Real Cutie!

“Glad We’re In The Same School” Goldfish Valentines

Bear Hugs

Animal crackers have so many different options for little Valentine notes. “I’m WILD about you!” “Zoo are the only one for me!” “I’d be a CIRCUS without you!” and my favorite “A BEAR hug!” These notes would also go perfectly with TeddyGrams.
Without taking the yum-factor out of the sweet Valentine exchange, stick with some real foods when sharing the “love” this Valentine’s Day!

Bring on the Love!!
XOXO
