Valentine's Day has never been one of my favorite holidays. I know, the girl that loves pink, hearts, and glitter is not a Valentine's Day fan? It is a little surprising. When I was in 7th grade, my dad told my sister and I on February 14, that he was divorcing our mom. I took it really hard. From that moment on, I hated the day.
I kind of assumed that as I got older, I might get over it once I started dating. However, other than my ex-husband, I have never been in a relationship on Valentine's Day. So, it does not hold the same lovey feelings for me that it does for others.
Luckily, as a mom, I know that I will always have my very own Valentine. I don't want my daughter to grow up not enjoying the fun that this holiday can bring. That is why we did the Love Tree craft that I talked about in a previous post even though I am not crafty at all.
What about a tasty treat?
Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now, so I decided to try my hand at putting one together. I have seen many that are very fancy, but I decided to get things that were inexpensive and make it look simple but cute.
You can really use anything you want on a charcuterie board. You can also make them look however you want. Here is what I used:
As I said, charcuterie boards can be put together just about any way you choose. Some people make them packed in with goodies. I decided to leave mine a bit more sparse to keep it simple.
I placed the Oreos in the center of the board in a heart shape. Then I built things around it using the cookie cutters. Once done, I scattered the remaining chocolates around the board. Finally, I added the signs for a fun aesthetic.
