My sweet Valentine

Happy belated valentine's day everyone! This year for valentine's me and my hubby celebrated by eating out and watching a movie at home, it was so relaxing! We also spent a few days with my mom who just had some heart issues this past week, and was in the hospital for a stint. We are so glad and relieved she is feeling better and more like herself everyday. I am extremely proud of her for her courage to take on a whole lifestyle change to keep her heart healthy and tickin' well. And I vow to take on the challenge as well. Eating more heart healthy to save your heart is the best gift you can give yourself and loved ones this valentines. So join us in the challenge!
