  1. I recently made chocolate pancakes for the first time and they were great! I don’t have a valentine, I make little gift bags with homemade treats for a few shut ins who live near me. Making them feel special makes me happy and it isn’t hard to do.

  2. Ordinarily I’d say my boyfriend, but since my 86yo Dad is currently living with us recovering from surgery — I guess I have two valentines this year.
