Screenshot_2015-02-08-23-34-44-1-1Welcome back and thanks for visiting Amigos! It’s been a while since I shared something with you! February is a crazy month for the Purcell Family… My mom’s birthday, my older son’s birthday, my husband’s birthday, our Anniversary and Valentines Day ~ Yikes! 😆

I’ve been cooking and baking a lot more this month, but low and behold, no blogging! I’ve been spending all my time with my family and the people I love…
I suppose that is what Valentines Day is all about… being with the one or ones you love! Amongst all the excitement, I did manage to remember to take some pics of these Creamy Pink Beauties I taste tested for my Valentine Crew! 💜❤💜
