"All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."
― Charles M. Schulz
The Peanuts Be My Valentine movie is one of our favorites, offering the cynic in us all a reminder of the special awkwardness of unrequited grade school crushes. But one of the takeaways is definitely that we should all be our own Valentine — a little bit of self-love goes a long way.
So instead of checking the mailbox everyday, might we suggest that you decide what your heart needs this February 14th and make your own wish come true. If that wish involves chocolate and sugar, know that we have you covered (Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Marshmallow, nudge nudge hint hint).
From now until Valentine's Day, our café will be stocked with sweet treats to enjoy on your own (a single Champagne Macaron) or with your loves (a very shareable Heart Chocolate Bundt Cake that can be pre-ordered online).
We are also baking up our classic Sugar Cookie, in the shape of a heart with beaucoup sprinkles, and donating $1 from every sale to the Spread the Love Commission. This local grassroots organization gathers essentials for the homeless population and advocates on their behalf. Giving back while treating ourselves and our loves, might just be the best Valentine of all.
