Valentine's Day Dilemma

They really enjoyed getting one another gifts, so for Valentine’s Day in 1993, Steve knew that he had to come up with something really special. Sadly, trying to outdo each other throughout the years left Steve without an idea for Valentine’s Day. After a bit of searching, he wandered into a local florist shop, hoping to find some inspiration.

The Perfect Gift

Knowing that he didn’t want to get Candace the typical Valentine’s teddy bear, he completely skipped over that section in the store. Instead, a little rabbit figurine caught Steve’s eye. As soon as he looked closer, Steve realized that it would be the perfect gift for Candace, especially considering that they called each other “honey bunny” as a pet name. So Steve bought the rabbit figurine and brought it home to Candace.

Rabbit-Themed Gifts

As it turns out, Steve’s intuition was right on point because Candace absolutely adored the rabbit. In fact, just a few days later, Candace gave Steve his very own rabbit!

Growing Bunny Collection

It wasn’t long before five years had passed and the couple’s bunny obsession was almost out of control. Like most people who collect something, Candace and Steve just couldn’t stop. In 1998, the couple began to make some drastic changes to their Pasadena home. Not only did they make changes on the inside of their home, but they also constructed a massive hedge in the shape of a bunny on their front lawn!
