Gabe and I have never really done much for Valentine’s Day. It just hasn’t been that big of a deal around our house. Even when we dated it seemed like a lot of trouble to spend too much on flowers that are substantially cheaper on other days of the year or go to dinner in a restaurant that’s packed when most nights you could sit right down. That’s a lot of work. Why not show the person that you love just how much you care throughout the rest of the year? Flowers seem to mean just a little bit more when they come for no reason than as a half to.
This year I decided to make a quick, no-bake cheesecake because Gabe said it sounded good and it seemed like just the right time to break out the heart shaped pan. The flowers were something free I happened upon and that’s pretty much the celebration of our Valentine’s Day. And I couldn’t be more happy about it.
