I'm always looking for new ideas on how to express love to my family and make memories. Recently, I was inspired in the most unlikely of places -- in Target, filling up my shopping cart with Easter treats for the wee ones. I kept coming across a lot of Bill's favorite treats as well. Hmm, thinks I. And a light bulb started flashing above my head -- which with my Mommy brain, that light bulb doesn't flash very often! So into the cart goes the honey mustard pretzels, the sweedish fish, and Peeps. And voila! I've stumbled across a new tradition: the kids and I will go shopping once a month (or there about) and get a few special treats for Daddy. We'll put it in a special bag with a special love note and sneak it into the passenger seat of Bill's car. Keeping in line with the title of this post, our special gift will appear on occasional Mondays (to make that first day back to work a little sweeter)!
