3人娘のバレンタイン Valentine's day with 3 girls

みなさんバレンタイン楽しみましたか?

年頃の娘が3人もいる大谷家。

バレンタインデーは一大イベント。

2/14までの3-4日間台所は占領され家中チョコの香りであふれました。

Enjoyed Valentine's day??

This is how it gets to be around Valentine's day 

if you have 3 daughters in Japan where girls prepare "obligatory"(not always but) chocolates for boy/girl friends, classmates, teachers, families, etc...

The kitchen is occupied 3-4 days ahead of V-day, 

and so much chocolate, sugar, butter and so forth are consumed by 

the enthusiastic girls, and the whole house smells like chocolate...

It sounds a lot of work(and it really is!) but our girls enjoy baking 

and try to make something new every year, and getting better year after year...

So, as a mom I decided to support them as much as possible.

Because I think it's something to make the most of this special day
