Will You “Bee” Our Valentine?


With less than a week to go, Valentine’s Day is getting it’s fair share of attention and while we’re not ones to go all out in celebrating this holiday (read last year’s post here), we admire those who do.  That’s why we’ve been busy as bees gathering some bee-fitting things that might make your day more bee-dazzling…  From writing your love a letter,


to keeping your lips kissably soft…


and treating yourself to a long bath…


before a candlelit dinner…


bee-decked in jewels!


“And to the flower, a bee is a messenger of love…” ~Khalil Gibran

How will you be celebrating with your bee-loved?

Inspirations, The Latest Buzz

Be Mine, Valentine

Love in Bloom - Jack Benny

We have a confession to make…  We’re not really into Valentine’s Day.  “That’s strange,” you may ask yourself, “aren’t these girls into flowers?”  Well, we are, but that still doesn’t change the fact that we think Hallmark seems to have kidnapped February 14th and demanded that we express our love as a ransom.  After all, if you’re with the right person, every day should be Valentine’s Day!

Kiss Kiss Hug Hug - Ke$ha

That being said, with all the lovely Valentine’s posts out there in blog land, we broke down and ordered these delicious smores’ for our boys.

Sweetie Pie, Honey Bunch - The Four Tops

Loving Cup - The Rolling Stones

And with the beauty of online shopping and express delivery, it’s not too late to shop some of our favorite stores!

Gourmet Giveaway: Rose Truffles

We’d like to believe that every day is Valentine’s Day when you’re in love but who wouldn’t want to treat themselves to chocolates around this time of year?

Knipschildt Chocolatier

Knipschildt Chocolatier

We discovered Knipschildt Chocolatier years ago while driving to and from work – Fritz’s store was just around the corner from our offices and we were always curious as to what kind of delicious confections we could find there.  After reading that Gourmet magazine rated Knipschildt one of the best chocolates in the world, we knew we had taste them…  Needless to say, Fritz’s chocolates are exquisite – from the look, the taste, the varieties and the packaging, his dedication to creating a memorable and delightful experience is unsurpassed.

So this Valentine’s, we thought we would share our love for chocolate (and flowers!) with a special gourmet giveaway – this beautiful handmade box of truly decadent Rose Truffles (rich dark chocolate truffles with a rose water infused dark chocolate ganache center topped with an edible rose petal) from Knipschildt.
