Thursday Musings

See these.

This is the Devil's Food. Satan's Sugar. Undeniable goodness of the Underworld. Oh, sure, people this side of Hades call it Salt Water Taffy. You might think there are cute little ladies in white hats and smocks surrounded by sparkling stainless steel making this. Don't' be fooled. If chocolate didn't exist in this world, this would be my favorite candy. When chocolate isn't in this house, this is my favorite candy. Forget that, there IS chocolate in this house now, but it's the taffy that I reach for; and reached for too many times this week. Its sweetness. Its gooeyness. Its chewiness. It's melt in your mouth utter divine-ness. Its poundage-adding-ness. Not good, but soooo good. I took a little blog-break after My Croppy Summer, recoup and re-energize. I still have awards to announce and hope to get that today or tomorrow. With the Dark Master's Dessert gone I'll have more focus - more jiggle on my body, but more focus on my mind. If you didn't have a chance to check out the Blue Plate Special yesterday, I leaving it on sale for those reading this today. Wander over and take a gander at the basketful of October Afternoon - there's only a few left - and the price is irresistible for this packed kit. Be on the lookout for a Super Summer Clearance sale at Apron Strings over the weekend. Great prices, awesome Last Chance deals, additional savings with a coupon code and shopping rewards. Other things to look out for - Apron Strings is a sponsor for Ali Edwards' relaunch of her website. Newly designed and easier to navigate you have to go take a peek HERE. You can enter to win an Apron Strings kit HERE; go leave a little love ;) You might win - Kristin did when she went over to Elle's Studio last month. :) And finally - today is my husband's and my anniversary - 21 years. Dang. I have officially spent as much time with my husband as I did with my parents. 21 years ago neither one of us had a clue what lay ahead. We've come quite a ways from those "kids" we once were. We have our private jokes. We've struggled. Soared. Laughed. Cried. He's been my rock. My support. My best friend. The love of my life. I can't imagine going through this life with anyone else at my side. And I look forward to what may lay ahead of us. I thank God for the paths that brought us together. Christopher, I love you. Thank you for the life you've given us these past 21 years.
