Will you be my Valentine?

A chocolatier's life is controlled by the rhythm of Chocolate High Holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Valentine's Day, Easter and Mothers' Day.  So while we just finished celebrating the end of 2014, in proper chocolate style of course, Valentine's day is just around the corner and will shortly dominate the schedule of every chocolatier. 

Valentine's Day is totally defined by the gift of chocolate, flowers, and romantic meals by candlelight, but how did this come to be? According to Wikipedia, and I quote, " the day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Chaucer in the late Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery and sending greeting cards." 

So faithful to tradition, I am surrounded by test chocolate hearts of all sizes and preparing for my Valentine offerings, so you will be able to express your love on that beautiful red-ribboned day!
