Who Loves Ya' Baby?

 After a solid month of zero and below temps along with several feet of snow, I am happy to report it has been sunny and warm here. Love it!

Speaking of LOVE...I sure felt the LOVE Valentine's Day. Wow, girls do I have a sweetheart for a husband:) Before we left for our Kansas City Day of Shopping Adventure he gave me a beautiful red box.

I was super excited because the word on the box said "fresh". What is "fresh"? Oh, my...it is my VERY FAVORITE fragrance store on the Planet. Seriously. I stumbled upon a "Fresh" store about 6 years ago in Las Vegas at Caesar's Palace. I ended up buying this  yummy fragrance and fell in love... {Bergamot Citrus}

I made sure to use it sparingly, saving it mostly for special occasions. Oh, how I savored this scent! Then last October my sweetie and I found ourselves in Vegas again...one of my first stops was the "Fresh" store. This time Dave not only replenished my "Bergamot Citrus" but he bought me their latest creation...Brown Sugar.

It was fabulous, too. And so you can imagine my excitement when I saw that red box!! I opened it carefully...

Look at the beautiful silver paper. I wonder what's inside?

Oh my goodness! I love it! Three bars of Brown Sugar soap wrapped in beautiful patterned kraft paper. The smell coming out of that box was amazing!! Soooo lemony and fresh!

Honny, I LOVE it!!!
We spent the entire day together. It was bliss. I honestly have the BEST husband. Thanks again, Dave!!!

I wasn't the only one lucky enough to get something from their sweetie. Look what Jackson's girlfriend Sarah gave him...absolutely darling!

Cute poster Sarah gave Jacks.
So with all this LOVE flying around yesterday I decided that their was only ONE choice for our WORD this week. Can you guess it??!

Word for 2/15-2/21
Think of all their is to love in this world of ours....

Our family
Our friends
Our Lord and Savior
Art Supplies
Sunny Days
Our homes
Our jobs
Long walks

The list is endless!!

So this week I want us to focus on LOVE. Try to think positive. Get all the negative out of your life. LOVE your days...the moment your in. LOVE!!

Who and What do you love?


  1. I swear, half the time I read your posts I tear up! I have no idea why this time, but it was such a sweet post - and no wonder you have been married for so long - you obviously both cherish each other ;). LOVE Fresh too - way to go DH! And that note from your son's girlfriend!? SO cute - can't wait to adapt that idea in some way sometime in the future . . .
    Now, I don't really say this much (don't want it to be read into wrong) but Kendra has a "boyfriend!" THEY are so cute together - have been "together" since last October, and just had their first "date" to the circus last week, lol! Good thing we are close with his parents (they are in kindergarten together) - anyway, yesterday she gave him a canvas she painted (it said, be mine and cutie!) and he gave her a necklace he made out of dinosaur beads - kendra's fav! Now, is that cute or what?!!!!
    LOVE to you, xoxo

  2. What a VERY thoughtful husband you have! Most would never have remembered a fragrance like that! I love my hubby and my son - my 2 Valentines. And I'm loving my new iPad, my V-day gift! :-)
