I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

I had no idea..........

That just me, writing on this teeny,tiny blog would bring me to a fun night out! I got an email a few weeks ago from More Than Mommies and See's Candies to attend an event for local family friendly bloggers.

I was a bit taken aback. How was I chosen to be invited? (I'm still not sure!) but I'm glad I was. I was able to take a 'plus one' who happened to be my husband.
We were greeted at the entrance by a women in a super cute,vintage type uniform bearing chocolate. The chocolate. It never stopped coming. We were offered any piece we wanted to try. There were about 100 different kinds behind the glass. Over the course of the evening I tried an Apricot Delight, Pumpkin Truffle and the Milk Bordeaux.

Higher ups from the company were there and gave us some history on the company.(Glad I listened closely! There was a quiz at the end!) We learned that the famous episode of I Love Lucy was filmed at their factory!

 And guess what? We got to try that ourselves. We partnered up to pack our boxes of candy. Tim and I didn't win but we did get to take home the half pound boxes we packed. So fun!!

The store was beautiful, all black and white with all the focus on the candy. The delicious candy.
Remember that quiz? I got a question right and was awarded a box of Bridge Mix-Tims favorite!

When we left we were given awesome 'Swag Bags' full of See's goodies to share with our family.

 I struck up a few conversations with other bloggers there and found out there is a whole world of local blog events I had no clue about. I think something like this is exactly what I needed to kick me in the pants and get me blogging again. Guess we'll see what happens!
