Friends, Valentine’s Day is a Saturday this year, which is a very special aligning of the stars because it means breakfast in bed. And by breakfast in bed, we mean all-out, decadent, something to toast the holiday, and a little sweet to finish it all off, all while in PJs and top knots.
Oh, and all without having to exert any more effort than, say, swiping the Snooze button. We’ve got everything you need right here to create a morning that’s worthy of the one you love, be it your sweetheart, your Mom, or yourself.
It's a special day and that calls for special circumstances, like spiking our Iced Almond Lattes, don't you think?
True, we normally turn to these as a hangover cure but that doesn't mean you can't start your weekend with them too.
