Remember the Jimmy Durante song "Make Someone Happy"... someone made me very happy :~)

By
Home Stager

Actually it was two people who made me very happy,  Prince William County, VA REALTOR'S® Arthur and Karen Kruschka. You see Karen posted a blog titled 'Why I Love My Husband #7'. I thought she was very brave to post that photo because now others might fall in love with Art too!

Karen and Art never forgot my love of bread and breadmaking, I used to buy flour in 50 lb bags... for real. Last week I received an email from them asking for my home address because Art was baking his fabulous loaves that week. Well Friday afternoon the UPS delivery truck pulled up and the gentleman stated this was a special overnight delivery. Oh you bet it was, he had gold in his hands!

The package contained these delicious goodies.......not one but two!

loaves of bread

Make someone happy,
Make just one someone happy,
And you will be happy, too.

 

I only commented on Karen's blog. Can you imagine being a real estate client of the Kruschka's?         Wowsa!!! These guys are way cool!

Cynthia- What a thoughtful and kind thing to do.  My hubby has been making bread too. Goodness knows we don't need to eat it.  We usually end up giving part of it away.  Should give you his recipe for yogurt bread.  It's great.

Morning Gayle, now I'm curious as to why your husband freaks outs, maybe it's all business or nothing w/ him. It can take a while to share your more personal side, maybe give him a bit more time? Thanks for stopping by!

 

Morning Karen, you and Art really made our weekend :~) I don't even attempt sourdough bread anymore as it's one tricky dough to work, so it was a real treat for Ted and I. I can tell it's a labor of love poured into those loves and am happy to be on the receiving end.

Many Thanks to you both!!!

 

Morning Bliz, isn't that he best? Art and Karen Rock!

 

Morning Sharon can you imagine being a client of theirs? Think of the care you would get in their hands! Oh my, bread is to hard for me to give up, in fact I can't give up anything I love. Moderation seems to be working for me so far. I love rye bread too, sounds like you have good man too!

 

Morning Rascally Roger, ahhhhh the wreath post it will haunt me to the day I die. So I guess I better just do it...but when? Karen & Art are the best, I'm a lucky gal to know them.

 

Morning Miss Sharon Lee, it was scrumptious and so kind of them! You do the same :~)

 

Morning Kathy, hey what's with all these husbands who bake bread??? Well my husband can toast it perfectly, :~O  I have not had yogurt bread yet, yes please send the recipe!

Cynthia, nice shout out to Karen and Art.  They obviously think the world of you as do the rest of us.  So much of this goes on here at AR...I'm continually amazed at the friendships that are formed.
