Whole lot of love

Every February we celebrate Valentine’s Day by giving flowers, candy and cards. We do this to honor St. Valentine. Know one knows who the actual Valentine was. Some think he was a priest in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Others believe Valentine was a prisoner who sent a love letter and signed it “Your Valentine”

We may never know who the true Valentine was but we have been celebrating Valentine’s Day since the middle-ages.

Another valentine figure is Cupid. In Roman mythology Cupid is the son of Venus, goddess of love. He goes around shooting gods and humans with his arrows, causing them to fall in love.

How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?

The boys and I made pictures and cards to give to friends and family. I’m also making a special dinner and dessert.

Below is a fun dessert recipe that I’m sure will be enjoyed by all.

 

Layered Brownies

1 (20 ounce) package chocolate brownie mix with nuts
