Before popsicle shops were popping up (pun intended) everywhere, it was this cool (pun not intended), novel, genius idea. My husband and I were in Nashville and a friend recommended Las Paletas, a popsicle shop. I was kind of confused, and super intrigued. I mean, popsicles are basically frozen juice, right?!

I love Valentine’s Day! I know it’s known as a “Hallmark Holiday,” but I love a holiday about LOVE! Growing up, Valentine’s Day was the holiday where my parents would hide candy and cards all over the house, and all day my brother and I would continue to find new surprises.
