I'm a sucker for Valentine's Day. I love pink, I love having an excuse to write a sappy love note, and I love having a reason to dress up on a random day in February. Most of all, though, I love the candy. Long before I had someone to celebrate the holiday with, I had sugar – and in my opinion, that's a fantastic Valentine's Day. This year, Target officially has the cutest Valentine's Day treats, whether you're stocking up on candy to share with a lover, send with your kiddos to school, or keep all to yourself.
It always makes me laugh when I hear people complain about Valentine's Day. Oh, it's a holiday created to sell greeting cards, flowers, and candy? It's a waste of money, you say? You are perfectly entitled to stay home, save your precious money, and ignore the holiday altogether, while I splurge on enough cheesy Valentine's Day stuff to make my home look like Cupid threw up. Winter can be long and gray, and I'm always thankful for the annual chocolate and roses extravaganza. I'm especially thankful this year after seeing the new goodies Target has for us. On February 14, share the love (and show a little self-love) in the form of a heart-shaped sweet... or cheese if that's your cup of tea.
