Today I thought I’d quickly share some photos of my Valentine’s Day Morning. Or rather, Valentine’s Morning.

It started off with a nice cup (or glass, I guess) of coffee. I’m not actually that much of a coffee drinker, because although coffee supposedly improves your energy levels, I can’t really verify this claim. I really don’t feel the caffeine rush, I don’t particularly feel more awake, energetic or smarter as some believe. So, yeah.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the taste every now and then!

I wanted to have something cute to go with the beverage, so I made adorable baby pink pretzel hearts. As you probably know by now, I am a big fan of sweet’n’salty. Yum!

After dying with a drop of red food coloring, I simply piped the melted white chocolate onto the outer rim of the pretzels trying to create a heart shape as good as I could and sprinkled with some edible sprinkles. Such cuteness.

But since I don’t actually eat sweets, I had to give them away. But that’s ok, because Valentine’s Day is all about love and kindness and giving and that sort.

Fresh flowers are my new favorite thing for spring, I have decided. They brighten up any room and smell good. Although I am obsessed with peonies, these tulips really got me into the right I-can’t-wait-for-spring-but-it’s-ok-I’ll-wait-because-I-have-no-choice mood.

Oh, and I also failed miserably at my own Valentine’s Day themed scavenger hunt. Such a letdown.

Since it was a Saturday I figured the park would be crawling with couples going for a leisurely walk. Or, crawling with anyone really, but the place was practically deserted! I’m not sure where everyone was hanging out, but not in the park, that’s for sure.

I probably should have scouted the heart of Berlin, strolled through the busy shopping lanes or something.

I did however come across the most adorable tree house I have ever seen! In the middle of Berlin too, wasn’t expecting that. Not gonna lie, I was a little jealous too. Check out the photo on my Instagram.

Also, a friend of mine posted this little quote on one of the many many social media platforms out there, and it really stuck, so here it is for you:

“I dare you to love yourself.”

Yeah, dwell on that for a moment.

I hope your Valentine’s Day was awesome, or at the least, a relaxing Saturday!
