Seeking a long, wonderful four-day weekend not only means plenty of time, relaxing, reading, sun-soaking and the occasional drink and dessert. It also means, three ridiculously busy, character-building, hair-pulling, on the verge of tears days as I try to get everything done and just so. But I did it! I was the little train that could and I did it.
However, a little moment happened during the course of my day today that just made me smile and make my day…better. My co-worker and friend came in from her lunch break, playing the age-old game: pick-a-hand. I always go with the left. I sit there for a good moment thinking, “Risk it, choose the right one!” I end up choosing the left. In her hand was a wonderfully pink and gold shiny bag of none other than chocolate.
Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares filled with raspberry filling and all I thought–Just for me??? Could have cried. I didn’t, but really I could have. I opened the bag and interestingly there was one square that looked so unlike the others. A surprise? A surprise I actually like? We’ll see.
I pulled out the square that was wrapped in red and white. It would have been great had I unwrapped it and Wonka’s Golden Ticket had fallen out of it, but I was still happy. Luxe milk chocolate and almond. Melted so wonderfully, I had forgotten how well milk chocolate could.
XOXO Thank you, chica for my little gift…
