Men and Diabetics like Easter Baskets Too!

Like many Americans, my husband has diabetes.  He has to give himself four needles a day and he only eats food that has sugar as a first ingredient when he is experiencing a “low”. In my opinion, he is very compliant – but he is also a “foodie”.  Having this illness is a difficult cross for him to carry.  My heart goes out to any one with the disease – or with a loved one who has it.MensEasterbasket.jpg

Even though my husband Matt has diabetes, I still put together an Easter Basket for him. Maybe it’s because we were married without children for so long, it seemed to make the house happier – or maybe we are just huge dorks that like to pretend to be the Easter Bunny once a year.  Either way, we have fun with it!  Luckily, there is an awesome candy store – Stutz Candy – that has a huge selection of sugar free candy.  Now, all things in moderation of course – but these treats put a huge smile on his face and that makes me happy :)!
