A Valentine's Day Treat!

Finally I this year I have an actual Valentine so I wanted to do something extra special for CJ. He's not really a sweets guy but he loves Chocolate Covered Strawberries and that just happens to be my specialty. =)

Ever since I learned how to melt the chocolate and hold the stem tight and just leave a lil bit of the redness still showing I've loved making chocolate covered strawberries! I have a small family and all of our birthdays tend to be around the same time so it's VERY easy to get sick of birthday cake. Chocolate covered strawberries became one our alternatives. It's so easy & fun to do! When CJ told me he liked them I jumped at the chance to make them. Oh Cj...I love him so much.

 Cj & me the day we became Boyfriend & Girlfriend <3

Sometimes your life just hands you a dream you didn't know you were searching for. He makes me feel like I'm the only girl in the world. The lil things he does to make me smile just warm my heart. I've never been more happy in any relationship I've been in. We've been dating almost 9 months and it's been several of the greatest months ever. I'm not sure what we are up to tomorrow but all I know is that the moment I get out of work I want to be in his arms and the next day and the next day after that...


I hope he likes the strawberries! Here are the photos of my Chocolate Covered strawberries for him! =)

If I don't get post tomorrow I want to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day! =)

You're lucky to have found each other. And those strawberries look delish! My sister burned herself using a double boiler so I'm scared of them, haha.
