(See How Much I Love You)
I was so excited to get to try SHMILY coins... I’ll tell you about the fun, but first, a little background:
For over 50 years a special couple played a game, writing “SHMILY” for the other to find. It was written in the sugar to surprise whoever was preparing the next meal, smeared in the dew on the windows, and written in the steam left on the mirror after a hot shower, where it would reappear bath after bath. Once she even unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper to leave “SHMILY” on the very last sheet! You can read the full story HERE.
It was this love story that inspired Scott and Jen Ertl to start a business that nurtures family relationships. They began making wooden SHMILY coins to help others create the fun tradition.
SHMILY Coins are 1½" round and made of wood.
All SHMILY Coins are made in the USA, are 100% wooden, and do not contain any MSG or BPA.
I received 10 SHMILY coins to try. The coins arrived with a page telling the whole story of the loving couple who started the tradition. I immediately placed one in my husband’s sock drawer, and left for work. Later that morning, when he was getting ready for work I received a text message from my husband. I’d tell you it was a “mushy love note,” but that would embarrass him, so I won’t tell you what it said. Haha!
So, a couple of days went by and I was anxious to see where I’d find the SHMILY coin. But, it didn’t happen. When I hinted about wanting to find the coin, he admitted that he’d kept the coin in a special drawer (you know, the one with all the cards your children created over the years), because it made him happy to see it. Ok, well, I guess that’s a good reason to get more than one!
So, we each took a couple of coins and that’s where the fun began. Over the next few weeks I found one in my coin purse while at Starbucks. He found the next one under the remote control (what a great place to hide it, right?)
We had so much fun that I shared two of the coins with my daughter and son in law, and a few with friends. One friend left hers in a grandson’s lunchbox, and another placed a coin on another friend’s car seat.
