Heart Shaped Snacks for Hudson Valley Foodies on Valentine’s Day
When the moon hits your eye, like a heart shaped pizza pie, that's amore...
Oh those aren't the lyrics?
When it comes to celebrating Valentine's Day in the Hudson Valley, there are obviously plenty of directions you might go.
Fancy dinners, flower deliveries, jewelry and candy - the whole "typical" v-day experience that can likely be pretty costly.
