Chocolate and love - they just seem to go together so naturally! Especially for Chocolove, a premium chocolate company based in Boulder, CO. Their dream began in a cocoa field in Indonesia and grew into a business that’s now a pioneer in the chocolate industry.
Chocolove chocolate bars are distinctly flavored bars made with all-natural ingredients. Flavors range from a sweet, creamy milk chocolate with 33% cocoa content, to an extra strong dark with an impressively strong yet smooth 77% cocoa content. Other Chocolove bars are married with flavors and ingredients like almonds, raspberries, ginger and sea salt.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a day where you feel pressured to spend a small fortune on dining out! I’ll tell you first hand that I'd rather spend my Valentine’s Day enjoying the simple things in life and maybe munching on a cookie (or two).
Below are several cute and fun homemade ideas that can be made with the special people in your lives or given as a Valentine gift!

It’s that time of year again when love is in the air ... Valentine’s Day!
If you’re looking to celebrate in style without breaking your budget, or simply prefer a more low-key evening in the comfort of your own home, consider planning a stay-at-home event with that special person in your life.

February can be a tough month. With temperatures plummeting below freezing, credit card bills still looming from December and tax season just around the corner, it’s easy to lose heart about another holiday.
Nevertheless, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate with your loved ones and forget about any winter stresses! This holiday need not be about expensive restaurants and flashy gifts. According to a statistic I recently saw, 82% of people said they’d rather receive an experience than a gift for Valentine’s Day.
