A week of love

TGIF!  Is it just me or does this seem like a terribly long week?  I know my girls are both out of school Monday so it will be a long weekend for us.

My girls never tire of heart lunches.  I used my mini pocket maker for the whole wheat and dark whole wheat mini hearts and a regular cookie cutter for the double heart sandwich in the middle.  In the bottom left are honeydew melon and pineapple hearts with a heart shaped plum in the middle of the fruit.  In the top left are multi-colored grape tomatoes and kalamata olives.  The top row has currants (small raisins), strawberries, blueberries and cashews.  In the middle section is a tiny, heart shaped coconut macaroon for a treat packed in her PlanetBox.

Wishing everyone a relaxing weekend!
