Some posts on this blog contain affiliate links to products we use and enjoy.
For instance, Love & other Spices is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. If you buy a product after clicking an affiliate link, we receive a very small commission, at no additional cost to you. This commission helps us cover blog costs, such as server hosting, data back-up, photo editing software, and many pounds of butter. The use of an affiliate link will always be disclosed in the relevant post. Thanks for helping us stay up and running!
