You Make Life Sweeter

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s one of my favorite holidays. This past weekend we celebrated as a family with cheese and chocolate fondues, game night, and movies. We stayed in and made special Valentines for the kids to hand to friends and teachers in school. And I surprised my husband with a special sugar spoon for his daily indulgence of coffee or hot tea. It’s a little way to let him know every morning as he starts his day just how much I love him and how he truly makes my life so much better. Thank you Brady for being the love of my life and for my girls. I love you all!

We thought they would be cute tied to bags of Swedish fish, and they were! Friends have been so excited to receive these delicious delights.

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
