We Heart Waffles


344/365
Ready for this? Today isn't just Valentine's Day. It's also our wedding anniversary. (Seventeenth, if you're keeping score at home.) I know, that sounds a bit like a stunt that's too cute by half. To be sure, there are advantages and disadvantages to combining these two events into one super-romantic day. One benefit to a Valentine anniversary is that there's no danger of forgetting either occasion. The downside is that it can be hard to get a dinner reservation on "amateur night."

But we don't mind. We hang out at home, feeling smug about how we have made this "Hallmark holiday" our own, and eat heart-shaped waffles.

Happy Valentine's Day!

That's adorable. I love the heart shaped waffles. Do you have the recipe to waffles? I'd love to know. :)

Congrats Chris - to you and Mr. CM! :-) Hubby and I will be celebrating our 18th this year in April. My, how time does fly! Hey, what does Hallmark really know about love anyways? I think this line from "The Longly-Weds Know", a poem by Leah Furness is profound:

"That it isn't about the (insert #) anniversary at all, but about all the unremarkable years that Hallmark doesn't even make a card for."

Thanks, Tracy -- and congrats to you, too! Time does fly, and I think that line says it all. :)

bambooska -- we just use the pancake recipe, and pour the batter into the waffle iron. Here's a recipe that's very similar to the one we use: http://southerncuisine.suite101.com/article.cfm/buttermilk_pancake_recipe
