Sparkt Love: Marty Gives Mary Her Own Valentine's "Surprise"

Mary was surprised when her husband proposed to her on *his* birthday on the advice of a fortune cookie at a Chinese restaurant. Now her love story gets her a surprise from Marty.

Mary Kelly Lovasz's love story was one of love that endures. Her decades-long marriage to her husband John started with a surprise proposal, and continues through the ups and downs, strong to the point where Mary wrote in her #SparktLove nomination (read it here) "I know I am with my best friend in life's journey."

Mary got her own surprise when Marty showed up with beautiful flowers from The Farmer's Daughter Flowers and chocolates from A519 Chocolate to make her Valentines Day. John was there too -- turns out he and Mary work together, so she and Marty shared some jokes about what it's like to work with your spouse (Marty worked with Kristine at KDKA for many years). Watch what happened (refresh your browser if the video doesn't immediately appear) :

Thanks to The Farmer's Daughter and A519 Chocolate for helping Sparkt make this day a little more special for our fans. Keep an eye out for our next "hashtag" campaign, an opportunity for you to share a story for the chance to win prizes.
