This week I fluttered around Berkeley snapping Instagrams of sweet local gifts and tagged many of them with the hashtag #HeartShapedBerkeley. From Whiskey tastings to tea sets, theres something fun to inspire everyone’s inner Cupid or turn Valentine’s Day into a second Halloween, if that’s your thing. Happy Valentine’s Day!

To make the heart shapes I used the free app Insta Shapes.
