Valentine Goodies From Williams Sonoma

February 11, 2019

By Tab Byrum

Happy Monday!!!! Counting today it’s three days until Valentine’s Day and you definitely need to be thinking about what you are going to do with and for your Valentine. Goodies are always a great idea, whether they come in the form of candy, cookies, cake, chocolate, wine or all the above. Goodies are also a great way to let your special someone know you are paying attention and know what they like. If they always get Twizzlers at the movie then buy 4 packages of Twizzlers, tie a ribbon around them and you have an easy and appealing gift for your Valentine. Today I’m going to share some fun and yummy Goodies, all from Williams Sonoma, that you can buy in your local store or order online and have for Valentine’s Day, and if you’re wondering I love Cinnamon Gummy anything and Chocolate anything…and Champagne. So, without further delay let’s check out the Valentine Goodie aisle at WS and Enjoy!!!

I’m Back, Hello February 2019!!!!

February 4, 2019

By Tab Byrum

Hello everyone and Hello February!!!! I hope all is good with all of you, sorry for the extended absence here in the ether but there was a lot going on and I decided to take a small hiatus. The holidays were good and very busy, we got everyone’s Christmas decor down and stored away for another year and then I had other stuff I needed to take care of, all of it good. There’s been a change in something I told you about last year but it’s a good change and I’ll go into more detail at a later date. Right now I’m working on getting things lined up for my clients for Valentine’s Day and I’m also working on some projects here at our casa. Michael and I are continuing to study Spanish on our own after taking Spanish classes 1, 2, 3 and 4 at a local Vo-Tech. We are studying using a couple of different apps and websites and making great strides. We don’t have any grand adventures planned this year but I’m sure that will change, not sure we’ll go to Europe this year but there are lots of places here America we have yet to see and visit so we may take short trips of 3 or 4 days and see some places and do some things we’ve been talking about for quite a while.

So, let’s talk February, the second month in the year and the month that most everyone equates with Valentine’s Day, cold weather, and the colors red and pink. I do like February, I’m starting to come out of my post-holiday slump and looking towards the new year ahead of us and hoping to accomplish a lot in the coming months. This year I’m hoping to make some changes here at the blog with the articles I write and the topics I cover. I’m wanting to do more with holidays and celebrations, decorating for these times and events, food, flowers, and sharing with you the things my friend Shana and I are creating for our Etsy shop and website (more on that next week). February is filled with chocolate, champagne, glitter and so much more so let’s take a look at a few things February, I’ll see you back here tomorrow. Enjoy!!!

One week from today is our nation’s birthday, 242 years old, and it’s my favorite Summertime holiday. 4th of July was always a big deal for my family growing up, we always went to my Grandma’s house and she would have a couple of ice cream freezers going, frying chicken and everyone else would bring side dishes.
