Happy Valentine's Day


My favorite Valentine's Day memory was when I was in Grade one at Englewood Elementary. It was the last year my dad was with us before we lost him. He was a chef for the Marine Atlantic Ferry Service and had a great cookie recipe in one of his books so my mom made heart shaped cookies for all the children in my class. They were beautiful with ruby red hard icing on top. With the left over dough my mom and lil sister made my dad a huge heart cookie! This is one of the only memories my sister has of my dad so sis this is for you! In memory of our dad, the man that loved us first. I couldn't get my icing to go smooth but that's OK it is ruby red and that's all that counts. Come and get it! I love you sis.
Happy Valentines Day Everybody!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!

My dear sister, thank-you.....You don't know how much I needed that today......

For all of you bloggers out there, sometimes we take it for granted that our family knows we love them............and though they may know they are loved, sometimes they really NEED TO HEAR it said.......so thank-you Sis for saying it.
