Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Popcorn

“I belong with you, you belong with me. You’re my sweetheart.” 

When I hear these lyrics they immediately make me smile, I start to dance, and dream about my sweetheart. I get super giddy and it doesn’t wear off quickly. 

Tonight on Valentine’s day we are planning to have a picnic date. Leu Gardens is playing an outdoor movie, “The Vow”, and we are going!
I’m imagining a relaxing night, laying on a blanket in the fields and spending sweet time with Eric.
