Priscilla Sweet here, your favorite cake and cookie designer, and one-half of the Sweet owners of Silver Rose. Before I met Michael, I spent 29 Valentine’s Days alone. Yup, 29. So, when I tell you I understand what it’s like to dread another February 14 coming up on the calendar, I mean it. I know there are a few types of people on Valentine’s Day – the singles who hate it because they’re alone, the couples who love it because they’re finally not alone, and the third group of both singles and couples who honestly couldn’t care less either way. Love is love and it should be celebrated no matter the day. I’ve been all three at different points in my life. I’m here to tell you that whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day can be Sweet with Silver Rose Bakery!
In the spirit of the holiday though, I’d be remiss if I didn’t share a little of our love story, because you know…love. Michael and I met on match.com. As I mentioned earlier, I was single for 29 years before my love came into my life. I finally decided just shy of heading into my 30s that it was about time to stop going at this whole life thing alone. So, being 2012 and me being me – a type A personality, busy managing a popular retail store, having never really dated before, and not having the time to go about this thing the traditional way – I created my profile on match.com. I carefully selected all of my preferences, desires, and deal-breakers for my ideal mate and meticulously filled out all of the questions about myself. Am I a smoker? What’s the most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done? If I could change one thing about the world, what would it be? So many questions! I had a few matches, some weirdos, some nice guys…but no one special. Then, one day, I was matched with some guy named Michael Sweet.
We were matched on September 22, 2012. Our first date was September 30. After 3 years of dating, he proposed in Ireland in October 2015 and we became Mr. and Mrs. Sweet on September 10, 2016. Somewhere, in the middle of all of that, we started a bakery business. We decided early on with our bakery that we wanted to be different. We’re not exactly traditional ourselves. So, why would we be that way with our business? Out-of-the-box thinkers from the start, we’ve always wanted to make sure that our bakery was one of inclusiveness, love, and celebration. Whatever it is, it’s worth celebrating.
So, now that you have a tiny glimpse into our love story, we’d love to play a tiny part in your February 14. Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with your honey, with yourself, or with your friends or family…we have something for you. Without further ado, let’s make the day extra Sweet!
