These adorable M & M's with CeeKay's face and two or three romantic words imprinted on each piece were inside, so she would remember how much her hubby loves her while she is away. I might add that the shells on the candy were in their WEDDING COLORS! You know, I'm not positive my husband could recite the colors used in our wedding if I held a match to his bare feet, and he's an exceptional husband! Yes, indeed, Mr. Romance is quite the Don Juan.
I could hardly contain my anticipation as I waited for the last box to arrive. I was seriously living vicariously through CeeKay! It finally arrived and I opened it to find...
and some lovely white berries on branches with plum colored leaves.
We stopped to take a nature walk and my Mr. Romance and I strolled down a winding path.
Finally a single red leaf on the still green grass gave us hope...
Eventually we settled for a small bunch of red leafed trees for CeeKay's photo! Having been somewhat successful in our colored leafing expedition, we decided to move on to a sure bet...
Now for some real blogging excitement! Do you recognize this header...uh, sign?
Look closely and you can see CeeKay peeking out and waving through the window!
CeeKay and I couldn't resist one last picture with the sign.
The Queen herself dines at Sweet Afton's!
The first portion of CeeKay's visit has come to an end. Tomorrow Hubby and I will drive her to stay with her family for nearly two weeks. Then CeeKay will be back to spend one more week of precious girlfriend time here before she has to go home to her Mr. Romance.
Have a delightful week, All!
