Valentine’s Day is next week, but hubby and I are celebrating early. We’re taking a day trip to Chicago today to visit L.A. Burdick, a chocolate shop and café. Everything is made by hand, including their cute little mouse chocolates that take three days to make! you can order them online although there are a few locations around the country. I’m very excited about this chocolatey trip.
