Quarantine Taught Us Something Great...

Wait, what?!

Let me explain...

Prior to the pandemic, most of us were so busy! I had 2 restaurants and 2 candy stores in 2020. I was working all the time. I missed so many special events. How about you?

Here we were living super busy lives. And then along came Covid, Quarantine! What a change! We were all home with our families - all day, everyday!. What a radical shift for most of us. It was quite an adjustment. When the holidays came, it was so hard not being able to be with family!

Right away, Life Is Sweet tried to help! I remember it was almost Easter. The stores were closed. We tried to offer a special solution to connect with and lift spirits. We helped connect family and friends - near and far. We sent eggs, treats and gifts along with your love. Even a letter from the Easter Bunny!

It was such a gift to be apart of helping families connect. I hand wrote many sweet notes from Grandma's, Mom's, and friends. I knew when I started Life Is Sweet that it made me happy. How gratifying that it can make others happy, too!

No matter the holiday, a bad day, or a 30th birthday... I love being able to help make people smile and feel special. We help create happy memories. Let's not forget the lesson of 2020. Take every opportunity to celebrate everything!

Connecting people with candy is our specialty. We love to do it!

We call it sharing #candylove.

But more on that later...

I just get so excited! Often, we share sweets with family and friends. What special desserts did you miss last year/ Maybe your special birthday cake? Grandma's Christmas cookies? Or Easter eggs with favorite candies?

I would love to hear your sweet story! Please share!
