Opposites Attract

Man, I'm really going to have to work on this whole blog thing. It's already been a week since my last post! Well, yesterday was Valentine's Day and I have to admit that I've never been a huge fan. I have an amazing husband, but romance is not his strong suit. So, I pretty much use V Day as an excuse to make treats. The terrible thing is I don't even make treats my husband wants. I called him yesterday and asked what he wanted and he replied, "Oatmeal Chippers". Now, I know you have no idea what that is, (it's a family cookie recipe) but it's pretty much the equivalent of your husband saying he wants chocolate chip cookies. In other words, we have them all the time and, as I told him, "those aren't pretty enough." ha. So, I made this instead. Disclaimer: this pie is super labor intensive and took FOREVER (like 3+ hours, including cooking time)

Pear-Raspberry Heart Pie (with a latte while I was cooking, of course. Coffee and pie go together. They just do. Wine and pie also go together.)

Yesterdays treat request made me realize how opposite my husband and I are. He likes consistency, I like change. He likes simple, I like elaborate. He likes the heat, I prefer the cold. And the list goes on. But I love him. He is perfectly made to complete me. He is kind when I am cynical. He is funny when I am too serious. He is hopeful when I am negative. I love you more everyday, S.
