We don’t really exchange gifts however sometimes we exchange cards, letters or candy :-)  Also, we never go out for Valentine’s Day.  We find it to be “over-rated” and expensive.  Instead I normally cook at home and always make this Red Velvet Cake for my hubby :-)  How do you spend your Valentine’s Day?  Do you go out or celebrate at home?

    We always go out but that is because we live with my parents right now and between them and our son, it’s not very “romantic” to stay at home.

    Think i am going to make a ding dong cake with pink frosting like i did when we were newlyweds! If you are wondering, it is like a large hostess ding dong.
