Happy Valentine’s Day! Colin and I will be spending it making dinner, playing with Claire, having some wine, and maybe we’ll search through Netflix for a movie….that pretty much describes every night of our lives. I did decide to make some festive cookies using my tried and true sugar cookie recipe that I make for every holiday. In case you missed it I’ve blogged about it here and here already.

Somewhere in between our old apartment and our new place we lost our heart cookie cutter, total bummer. But I improvised with the alphabet cookie cutters and a knife, thus the reason for some misshaped hearts {I have no explanation for the misshaped letters}.
