10 Great Valentines Day Ideas with Monica Hart featured in 425 Magazine_Studio B Portraits_0215.jpg

I LOVE my husband...I really do, but Valentines Day transformed into an extravaganza of candy hearts for our kids many many years ago!  Then...I photographed this 425 Magazine feature with the fabulous Monica Hart and I started to feel inspired that even I could pull off a Pinterest-worthy date night with my Valentine.  Full disclaimer as you stare through Monica's rose colored glasses -- this lady is major talented so where she is hand-dipping her own fortune cookies, sauteing her secret recipe crab cakes and crafting gold leaf hearts -- I'll be cheating with the Trader Joe's & Michael's version ;-)  Honestly there were at least 10 totally do-able ideas for me -- favorites... Casa Blanca on the big screen, sweet treats in perfect little serving sizes and of course fun beverages in fancy glasses!
