Yesterday, I started thinking about what to do on Valentine’s Day with my husband. It will be a night in for us, as it is unlikely we could get child care and restaurants will probably be packed.

I saw some really nifty ideas on Pinterest for making a candy gift basket. You make some little tags and you stick them on candy. Something like “We were mint to be together” on a box of Junior Mints. I’ll share a few of the other ideas below.

Please feel free to give me some additional ideas in your comments!

I soda think you are amazing. (root beer)

I’m nuts about you. (peanuts)

We were mint to be together. (Junior Mints)

You are my sweettart. (Sweettart)

It’s a joy being married to you. (Almond Joy)

You stole a piece of my heart. (Reeces Pieces)

Life would be unbearable without you. (gummy bear)

You rock my world. (Pop Rocks)

I love to kiss you. (chocolate kisses)

I like the way you roll. (Tootsie Roll)

Bring on the suggestions!


Loving Lilah, Book 2 in the Ladies of Cascade Creek, is on the way. If you haven’t checked out Book 1, Loving Lucas, here’s a little info!

lovinglucas2Audra Canton’s suitors have an odd way of making their case: they keep shooting at her. The Colorado Territory of the 1870s is tough on women alone; the two Canton sisters have no one but each other after the death of their father. All the locals want to marry Audra for the Canton homestead, and they’re not above scaring her into it. Audra needs help learning to protect herself and her sister.

That’s when Lucas Blake drifts into Audra’s life. She takes him on as a hired hand, though he’s anything but. He’s a lawman hot on the trail of a hardened criminal, and working the Canton homestead is the perfect cover.

But just when Audra thinks she’s out of the line of fire, Lucas accidentally puts her straight into the sights of a new, more deadly gun that makes her drunken suitors look like toy soldiers. Now Lucas and Audra must fight for their lives—and each other.

Loving Lucas can be previewed or purchased at the following retailers.
