For The Love of A House and Maple Syrup

A while back, one of my favorite blogs, For The Love Of A House had a giveaway for New Hampshire Maple Syrup.

I was the lucky winner!  And I LOVE real maple syrup, don't you?  So last weekend Mr. Comforts of Home made blueberry pancakes for Sunday breakfast and I got to enjoy this sweet syrup.  It was heaven!  (i know they are a litte misshapened, but they tasted wonderful!)

Now, if you don't know Joan and you are not familiar with her blog, you really need to go visit her.

Joan and Dan have moved into a once unloved antique farmhouse and are turning it into the most amazing home.  Here is just one picture of their beautiful home.

Thank you Joan!  The syrup was amazing.  Almost as amazing as your beautiful home!

Please take time to visit Joan at For The Love Of A House.  You will be amazed at the before and afters!
