Welcome to Hooked on Fridays, a blog party I host at the end of each week to celebrate the things that make us happy. Our niece and nephews came to spend some time with us recently, so we took them to an old-fashioned candy store in a nearby town. We all admired the ice cream-cone castles in the windows:
Inside, my niece Elizabeth definitely looks like “a kid in a candy store.”
My son Jake (far end) and my handsome nephews Kurt and Evan had root-beer floats at the counter:
The candy shop was great, but what was really special was having the kids with us. They live 5 hours away, so we don’t get to see them as much as we’d like. The cousins are all the best of friends.
The store is fairly new. It used to be an old, musty and dusty antiques store that gave me sneezing fits. I could hardly believe it was the same place! They did a beautiful job creating a new candy store with old-fashioned charm. I love the original ceilings:
Kids, we miss you already! Come back soon and Aunt Julie will take you out for more candy and ice cream. (I’m not above bribing them with sugar if it gets them here more often!)
I’m linking this post to Melissa’s Beautiful Life party at The Inspired Room because my nieces and nephews make my life beautiful.
