Heart Shaped Pancakes with Light Chocolate Ganache Sauce

Dear YOU,

I wanted to tell you something.  Something that kinda gets my stomach all in knots.  Makes me a little bit anxious and a lot bit woozy. 

Here goes . . . . ..

You make me happy.
I’m very happy having you in my life.  I. . . .uuuhhh, love you.

When my husband asks me about my blog, I laugh and tell him about the funny comments you left for me that day.  I tell him how much I enjoy hearing your stories and how glad I am that YOU are in my life.

I call you my friend.
I don’t call you my reader.
I don’t call you my blogger buddy.
I just call you my friend.

Many of you, I’ve never met in the flesh, but that doesn’t mean I love you any less.  You have become a part of my life, and it means a lot to me to know that I have you as a friend on the other end of this computer screen.

Anyway, my husband thinks I’m a little coo-coo. Willy nilly calling you my friend, saying that I love you.

But I do.  And I hope you feel the same. Happy Valentine’s Day.

When you are loved by Nicki Woo, it’s a heavy burden to bear.

I will. . . . .
Dig in your ears.
Smell your breath twenty times a day.
Yell at you for using harsh tones or calling people out of their name.
Kiss you more times than you can count.
Hug you tight. Hug you long.
Let you sleep in my bed if your tummy hurts.
YELL AT YOU for doing nothing wrong because I’m on my period.
Cry, when you send me texts that say
“Good Morning Love. Hope you have a great day! Love Mom”
Ignore you when I’m on the phone with you because I’m multi-tasking.
And. . . .

Make you heart shaped pancakes with LIGHT chocolate ganache sauce.
I hope the burden is not too much to bear.
