You probably won’t be surprised, but I was really inspired to make a cheesy *literally* dessert to sweeten up the day of love. My choice fell on the mini cheesecakes! Mostly because they are very easy and quick to prepare, and they do not require to be cooled overnight. Which means that you can still make them for your loved one *or yourself! Why not?!?!*

  1. Those are some cute facts! I don’t like cheesecake but I admit those look yummy! Have a great day!

  2. Those V-day facts were great and those mini-cheesecakes…WOW, they look delicious and you decorated them perfectly!!! Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your husband!

  3. I’ve decided you’re my blogger Valentine! Love this post!

  4. Those mini cheesecakes look divine! Thanks for sharing. Happy love day!

  5. If I tried to do partner body weight exercises with my husband, he’d probably make some snarky comment about my weight and I’d end up lying on him the whole time to squish the attitude out of him. LOL He has a bad back anyway though he’s finally been convinced to do daily exercises for that. Now we’re each other’s cheerleaders. I use my 4-year-old for body weight exercises. 37lbs is nice and heavy! Woo!
