Valentine’s Day and Food Storage 2011…aka Jodi’s HOT DATE!

Gift Ideas
Valentines day is kind of a funny/touchy subject around Julie's house. Julie and her husband celebrate Christmas, New Years (the day they met...aww how sweet), BOTH birthdays, their wedding anniversary, AND then Valentine's Day, all within 6-7 weeks. Needless to say by the time Valentines day rolls around, Julie and her husband are STARVED for creative ideas. Some years Valentine's Day goes uncelebrated due to sheer celebration exhaustion. Jodi had a great idea for this year that Julie might just modify a little ...
