To be honest I'm always dismayed by the lack of enthusiasm for Valentine's Day. I know it's a Hallmark Holiday, and people are cynical, and it sucks for single people, and the expectations for a good valentine's day can be too much, and too much pink and red makes some people want to puke, but I CAN'T GET ENOUGH.
So I do my best to spread the cheer :)
Today, I made those cupcakes to give out to people in my dorm building.
They're strawberry and chocolate marble with pink vanilla icing and white hearts.
And I'm not the only one with Valentine's Day cheer - a friend was giving out these lollipops :]
And to wear today, even though it's Sunday and all that's on the agenda is cupcake baking and distributing and lots of homework, I made a Valentine's Day dress.
And see, it even has a cute little heart cut-out
Close up it's only sort of shoddy:
And the shoes.

Question of the day: How do you feel about Valentine's Day?
Follow-up: How do you feel about the movie, Valentine's Day?
Oh, and of course, Happy Chinese New Year!
love (and some extra love today!) and right triangles,
