Valentine Traditions

This year's Valentine Celebration wasn't quite the same since I went back to work this year. I am used to devoting an entire week or more ~ preparing gifts and making the house sparkle with hearts and Windex!However ~ I managed to keep my 25 year tradition of making a Heart Shaped Meatloaf with ILY written across the top in green peppers.
My mom used to do this ~

it means alot to me to keep these sweet traditions. Along with that is the pink mashed potatoes! This year I decided to just do a dollop of pink on the top but the dye turned out to be that darn neon colored stuff and it turned out purple instead! That's okay ~ Love is blind ~ right?
