A Thoughtful Gift - "Mint to Be"

Today I wanted to share the simple details of a gift I gave my husband, just because. He works SO hard. He is the best dad. He makes me feel beautiful and happy and loved. Sometimes in the midst of our every day routine I forget to show him how much he means to me. Although I try to tell him frequently, sometimes I like to surprise him with a little something to remind him that I’m still head-over-heels in LOVE.

I liked this idea so much, I decided I didn’t have to stop there! Here is one I made for my sweet neighbor:
