It’s a beautiful thing. And it just so happens that I love you guys.
I know…awwwwwkward. I hate when someone random tells me they love me. You’re practically required by law to say it back, whether you mean it or not. I usually just say “me too!” So lame. It makes me feel like my 8th grade boyfriend.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day though and I made these absolutely perfect donuts that will rock your socks. They’re pretty much only Valentinesy because they’re red, but you guys…that’s how I roll. Cut something into a heart shape or dye it pink or red and there you go. Perfection.
I don’t know about your kids, but mine adore red velvet everything, so these were a perfect treat for them! Not to mention, I ate two myself. Whoops.
I’m co-hosting a Valentine’s Party with 8 other fabulous bloggers! This means that if you link up your project to any one of our blogs it will be seen by a whole boatload of readers! Not a small boat, either. One of those big giant cruise ships. Maybe even the entire cruise ship fleet? Who can say, really?
