Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Fargo couple working to make this Valentine’s Day special for all of the last minute shoppers is proving true love is a little sweeter when you have your partner by your side.
Lee and Brenda Paseka have run Sweet Dreams Confections for nearly 40 years, a husband and wife team, only growing stronger with time.
Lee and Brenda's journey to Sweet Dreams Confections started 40 years back, with a very sweet first date.
Lee Paseka/Sweet Dreams Confections: “Called up asked her out said want to go out Valentine's Day? She said sure.”
He's taking about his sweetheart, Brenda. 40 years later the Pasekas are still celebrating the holiday, working side by side behind the counter of their very own candy shop.
Paseka: “I really can't think of doing anything different.”
The couple started the business 37 years back...hoping to serve up smiles on days like today, for regulars who need a little extra love in their life.
Pat Weber/Regular Customer: “People are coming because of Brenda and because of Lee, not just for the chocolate, even though the chocolate is very good.”
Paseka: “Just kind of gravitate to the fun things we like to do apart, and it just works together as a team.”
Lee says the trick is knowing and accepting your differences, that's why Brenda is in charge of the fudge - Lee, the truffles.
Paseka: “You always have those trials and a tribulation as time goes on, but when you're at work together, you can kind of put everything aside and just try to make everybody else's lives happy too, and that kind of makes your life happy.”
And remember Valentine's Day can be so much sweeter, when you surround yourself with love, all year round.
Weber: “It shows they love.”
Sweet Dreams Confections is also a full service coffee shop, serving lunch and gelato Monday through Saturday.
