Recipe – Say it with fortune cookies!

Recipe - Say it with fortune cookies!

This Valentines Day I have a surprise for my boyfriend. I booked a hotel and we are going to eat at one of our favorite restaurants. It’s not really a gift that you can hold or eat, and I kept thinking: how am I going to tell him about the surprise? And than I got it, fortune cookies! How cute is it to tell your love about a planned trip with fortune cookies?

When he got the cookies he was really surprised. Especially because it isn’t Valentines Day yet. But I needed to give them today because we are leaving tomorrow morning. He loved it! So we are going to have two beautiful days in Groningen this weekend!

So maybe I made these speak bubbles as a reminder so this plant will really survive. Read More »
