Welcome to the February 9th edition of The Hearth and Soul Hop, the blog hop for all things home and family – family and comfort food recipes, healthy, sustainable living posts, homemaking, gardening, kids, crafts and DIY. Encouraging and inspiring posts are very welcome too.
Despite the odd snow shower, we are beginning to see signs of spring here in southern England. Snowdrops have begun to bloom in some places and some of my bulbs have even started to come through. And best of all, it’s the season for Blood Oranges. Last week, I shared some of my favourite Blood Orange Recipes. Any one of them would make a delicious dessert for Valentine’s Day!
I think it is nice to include everyone in Valentine’s Day and not keep it solely as a celebration of romantic love. It’s a great excuse to treat friends and family to little gifts or home-baked treats and I like to keep a special eye out for friends and neighbours who may be lonely. If you are planning a Valentine’s Day dinner, I do have some easy and delicious Valentine’s Day Menus and Recipes as well as tips for making the celebrations more relaxed and enjoyable. Also, don’t miss my tips on how to Keep the Romance of Valentine’s in Your Marriage All Year Long.
Thank you so much to everyone who visited and shared posts last week! Please continue to share the hop with your blogging friends to help us grow! Today I’m featuring three Valentine’s Day themed posts from last week’s hop.
Nutella Frangelico Love Cheesecake from Cydnee at Tampa Cake Girl
Lovely Valentine’s Wreaths from LuAnn at Lovely Livings
Decorated Shortbread Cookies from Patty at Cooking on a Budget
