    Bake Her a PIe

    No but seriously, just do it. Now I’m not suggesting you do the upper pie crust, but the lower right one? Not that hard. (You just need small sized heart cookie cutters). Unless of course you haven’t a clue about making pie in the first place. Then now’s the time to rectify that, because seriously?! Men make pies now too.
