a child tradition

honestly im not really a huge supporter of today's holiday and was not even going to post today but then i remembered the valentines sent out by paul and julia child i learned about while reading my life in france and saw it here the other day and decided to share their valentines day tradition

“Valentine cards had become a tradition of ours, born of the fact that we could never get ourselves organized in time to send out Christmas cards.” - Julia Child, My Life in France.

quote of the week

i spend 23 hours a day wondering whether we're wrong for each other,
wondering whether we've got the energy to make it through everything that we seem to get into...
whether the baggage we both bring would sink a small ship.
but in the 24th hour, i realize i've been thinking about her for 23 hours and i come back to...
there's something about her i can't get away from.
something about her that makes me want to love her.

my weekend

this weekend while i was home was jampacked with lots of great moments, celebrating chinese new year, getting to see my lovebugs, making red velvet cupcakes, buying my toms, being able to see my best friend and venting about everything and then listening to her vent to me, and texts at 9:30 at night to make oh baby bars. overall it was pretty successful and cant wait for it to happen again soon.

to be quite honest the cupcakes didnt taste like i wanted them too, i dont think there was enough cocoa powder and although i used quite a bit of food dye it still wasnt enough to make them the red that i expected. the cream cheese frosting on the other hand was to die for and i dream about eating it everynight now. any suggestions for a better red velvet recipe are welcome.
