I don’t know about you, but often I have the “best laid out plans” for my family~
let’s just say visions of hearts and rainbows…
And often times I am met with a miserable
Such is the reality of a 2 year old and a 4 year old

First comes a temper tantrum

First comes a temper tantrum

Then comes throwing things...

Then comes throwing things…

..and then down the dumps goes my vision of us in an assembly line making heart- shaped pizzas, giggling
and making lifetime rose colored memories…


Hearts & rainbows forgotten, I cut out the Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough into heart shapes with a cookie cutter ( by myself)

And put the sauce and the Italian seasoning on (by myself)
And carefully cut out heart-shaped, nitrate free pepperonis (by myself)
And I gently sprinkle on the Four Cheese Italian Blend (by myself)
Followed by my cute heart shaped pepperonis (by myself)
heart + spinach
Popped them in the oven and added spinach and red pepper flakes (for myself)
And  poured a half  glass of Grunau Wine’s Pinot Noir (for myself)
And let the boys eat their pizza under the table.
And breathed…

Happy Valentines!

    With a 10 month old boys I adore I can’t imagine him throwing tantrums…..ever. Which is exactly why I’m sure he’ll throw some pretty big ones. :) Cheers to you for bringing the love to the table both on and under it.
