Gimme Shugah™

Everyone knows (at least in the South) that Gimmee Shugah doesn't mean look for the sugar bowl to pass....

















"Gimmee Shugah" means, of course, give me a kiss. One of the most popular fragrances at The Scented Cottage is Gimme Shugah™... it is a sweet scent...like a sugar cookie baking in the oven..ummmyumm...but I digress. I once read a book called "Tell Me That You Love Me Junie Moon", it was made into a movie starring Liza Minelli if my memory serves me (and believe me some days it is no where to be found). AH...you think I digress again...but no...whenever I want a kiss from my SweetiePie I say "Junie Moon me". I remember my Daddy-o calling my little mother "Smoochie" and when we wanted a kiss we would say "smooch me".
Do you have a phrase or name for a kiss, or when you want a kiss? I would love it if you would leave a comment and share what it is...heck, I'll even throw in a smooch or two (one on each cheek).

My wish for you: May you always have someone who gives you "shugah".

How we love that-can almost smell how wonderfully sweet that fragrance would be! My husband and three-year old son love to do 'nosies' (aka eskimo kisses as we called them hen we were little)

blessings,

I like 'nosies"! How cute! And I may use Priscilla's "dame besos" since my girls are Guatemalan. Thanks for raising the topic Francie!
