Crushing It for Valentine’s Day

Can Crusher


When the worst gift ever turns out to be a powerful tool for magic.

My husband literally won an award for “Worst Valentine’s Day Gift Ever”, when his brothers were sharing their ideas on what to get their wives. He won, hands down, by giving me a can crusher.

Who would have thought sharing this story would bring me such joy!

A few weeks ago, while thinking of what to write for this email, I decided to share this story live. I mean, literally LIVE. I grabbed my phone, with no makeup and unwashed hair, and pressed “RECORD”. And, then…. Yup, I pressed “SEND”. Did I mention the no makeup part? Not even a blow out.

In that very moment, I felt such a rush of joy. That was the REAL me! I mean, isn’t that the whole point? 

My husband wondered why I was giggling for the next few days. Little did he know, it was his wonderful gift, from years past.

This Valentine’s Day, even if your person doesn’t get you a Syd, make sure they don’t get you a can crusher!

Love and Magic,
Ellen and Syd


What is the best gift you have ever received?

Please share. I could discuss these things all day.
