Larson note: Love is getting more expensive. Alas fair ladies of the world, what say you? Given the economic downturn $86,608 might be more than your man can afford as compiled by PNC Wealth Management Love is costing 10.9% or $8,508 more this year from only $78,100. Is this the year Mrs. Larson suffers with a box of chocolates and a kiss on the cheek? (You really think she will let me off the hook that easy?) No Norwegian penny pinching for my Swedish bride.

Thank you to all my clients (20 days in advance) for anther wonderful year of allowing us to serve you. You are our reason to exist as a business. God bless you all. And wishing you another double digit sales increase as you all have had this year
