How Sweet It Is {Jacky @ The Sweetest Petunia}

I LOVE blog swaps.
They are seriously so so great!
This month I did The Valentine Swap, made another sweet friend AND got more presents :)


Jacky, from The Sweetest Petunia, is the sweetest.
I'm so glad I was paired with her!
Check out how cute her shop is: Petunia Blooms.
SO CUTE right?!
Make sure you come back tomorrow... She might just have something for you in the big giveaway ;)
Anyway, here is what Jacky sent me:


Thank you again Jacky :)
I love it all!

And now for Jacky's love story.
She also agreed to be part of the How Sweet It Is series so enjoy :)

I always have a hard time deciding what our "love story" actually is. H & I have know each other since we were kids, so sometimes it seems like we've always been together. ;)

There are things I do remember clearly. I remember the first time he told me I had beautiful eyes. I remember the 16 page, hand-written letter he sent me once when I was away. I remember how adorably shy he was when he was younger (now he's one of the most outgoing people I know!). I remember how I didn't like him at all, didn't want to be his friend, the year I was 15. And I remember how he never gave up on me...I think that's what I fell in love with.

We've been officially together since January 6th, 2007 - 5 years now! We've been married for about 4 months, and I must say, it's the best. :) You can read about the day we got engaged & our wedding day on my blog!

((after just a couple months being official. 2007))

One of my favorite dessert recipes has to be these dark chocolate espresso cookies - so yummy!

I can't wait to make these cookies gluten free & vegan. I will share them SOON. Yum! -Ashley
