We decided to share some inspirational quotes on love to help you fully appreciate this special day. Today doesn’t have to be a day about romance, couples or finding your soul mate. It can simply be about love. And what is wonderful about love is that it is everywhere. It is in the smile from a neighbour as you head to work in the morning, it’s the person driving their car who lets you in line, or it’s the co-worker who boils extra water for you because they know how much you love a cup of tea to start your day. What is even better about love, is you can be that person- the caring individual whose day begins with whole lot of self-love allowing for an over flow of loving kindness to others.

Love begins with you.

Be loved, loving and loveable by making and sharing our Chocolate Pudding Recipe for Valentine’s Day! Enjoy.
