Valentine’s Day Chocolates

What’s the first word that comes to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day? Love, hearts, cards, red? For me, it’s definitely chocolate!

The other side of that truth is, I know I would eat the whole box. Mike on the other hand, has incredible self control and he can make a small box of chocolates last for months.
