30 Jan

I’ve been buying various candies lately so that the kids can make some Valentine’s Day gifts for their classmates.  Is there anything more cheerful than a bowl full of candies?  All those great colours and (artificial) aromas are just irresistable. 

I bought these cinnamon hearts in Canada when I was there after Christmas (because of course all the Valentine’s Day stuff was on the shelves by the 26th of December).  I’m pretty sure there aren’t too many kids that actually like cinnamon hearts but I just can’t resist.  Cinnamon hearts DEFINE Valentine’s Day for me.  They bring back warm and fuzzy memories of heart shaped chocolate boxes and drugstore bought Valentine’s cards.  I’ve already made each of my children suffer the spicy pain of eating at least one.
