Yesterday I asked you all what your favorite Valentines Day gift was. After reading some of your responses I started to think of what mine was.... and it, like most of yours, is nothing flashy. It was our first Valentines Day as a couple at the age of 16....Steve bought me a sweet card with a little boy and a little girl on the front. It was black and white with the exception of the red roses. That Valentines Day was our 11 MONTH anniversary. I smile when I look back at my old cards and find that particular one. We were so young! We celebrated every month together. Boy did that get old fast.... 12-13 years later if we celebrated every month together we would be broke!
The folks at Lucky Leaf recently sent me some of their favorite pie fillings to play around with as well as some super cute giftable baking items. I am not one to use canned anything. I make most of our foods from scratch. However there are days when I want something quick and easy. For a busy mom on the go Lucky Leaf Pie Fillings are perfect for those last minute school treats or potluck desserts. Not only did they send me some fun stuff... they want to send YOU some too! Be sure to check out the giveaway at the end of this post!
