I came home to a sweet little pre-V-day surprise earlier this week.
I think it’s so funny how the cookie and the flowers match. If you knew my SO, you’d know he hasn’t the slightest bit of artist in him, so it’s just a strange coincidence how they coordinate. But, artist or not, I love him! 🙂 I love him for these little surprises that he hasn’t done as much since starting night classes for his MBA but still tries to squeeze in now and again. I love how he knows how much I adore this little, local bakery down the road and has started trying to get me little treats from there now and again b/c the place seems to only be open when I’m at work and can’t make a trip there myself. This is the same bakery that makes those fabulous donuts…mmm. Don’t you just love those locally-owned places around your town? It’s great to be able to support a small business, but beyond that, the goods from these cute places always seem more special, much like how something thing that is handmade can be so…heartfelt. Do you have a place like this in your hometown? Maybe you’ve driven by it before but never stopped? It’s funny how these places can be such "holes-in-the-walls" sometimes – places you’d drive past and never notice. Anywho, I encourage you to check out your local offerings – the locally owned bakeries I’ve been to have always been the best…and you guys know I know my sweets!
Have a great weekend!
