Marriage is the best thing in my life. When we openly and privately express our love for each other it only serves to strengthen our relationships. When I am actively thinking of ways to tell my husband how much I love him, it makes me love him more. I realize how happy he makes me and I appreciate everything about him. I see things and think, "How can I use that object to tell him I love him?" This makes me think of him all the time. It makes our marriage stronger and it makes us both happier.

Pretty Cheesey

Today I took my husband a heart shaped Cheese Ball with heart shaped crackers. I just made his favorite kind of cheese ball and shaped it like a heart. Or you can just buy a cheese ball. Just push a dent into the top of the cheese ball and squeese the bottom to a point. I bought the crackers at Pirate O's, in Draper, UT. They are probably available at other specialty food stores ,too. I have seen them, occasionally, in regular grocery stores, as well. I have a recipe for a Pina Colada Cheese ball that would be cuter. It is white with little chunks of cherry in it and is covered with coconut instead of nuts. You could even color the coconut pink. But My husband likes the one I made better, so that's what he got. This would also be a good apetizer at a Valentine party.
The card says:

"I know this sounds cheesey, But I'm crackers over you!"

Here are the recipes for the Cheese Balls:

2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese
1 bunch green onions, Chopped
l-2 Cloves garlic (minced)
sliced almonds

Mix Cream cheese, onions and garlic. Form into ball. Roll ball in sliced almonds. Refrigerate, till ready to serve. Serve with Crackers.
You can add some chopped pimento or chopped red pepper to make it look more festive (for Christmas)

2 8oz package cream cheese
½ cup powdered sugar
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple (well drained)
2/3 cup flaked coconut
8 marachino cherries chopped (optional)
Flaked coconut to roll ball in.

Mix first 5 ingredients. Form into a ball. Chill. Roll in flaked coconut.
Serve with sweet crackers or fruit.
