Today is the first day of Spring. Of course, as I write this I can see little bits of snow swirling outside my window. Can you believe it? I don’t know about you but I’m so ready for some pleasant Spring weather. I want to sit with friends on the patio sipping tea. I want to leave the house without bulky coats and all the paraphernalia. Winter has left her dull mark on our landscape and I’m ready to see some color on our daily walks. We already have some tulips and daffodils trying burst through the ground so I know it won’t be long.
I’m always looking for any old reason to celebrate, and since it’s the first day of Spring, I think that’ll do.
But to add some icing on the cake, today is also the very first International Day of Happiness.
Talk about something to celebrate! Today my idea of celebrating involves a give-away with dark chocolate.
Need I say more?
I received a sample of this chocolate to make sure it would meet the high standards I have for you all. That’s the kind of person I am. I was so pleased with the rich, delicious flavor of the chocolate. As if that wasn’t enough, the pistachio nuts, coconut and sea salt added even more pizzaz. I had hoped to eat little bits of the chocolate at a time; imagining my future self taking a nibble here and there. But in the end, and as per usual, my present self won out. Oh, present self! How much you torment me!
One lucky person will get to enjoy nibbling away at two varieties of vegan, dark chocolate from the Sweet Boutique, Sucré:
- Dark Chocolate Bark and
- Coconut and Toasted Almond Chocolate Bar.
You may have seen Sucré in mentioned in O Magazine. Or maybe you heard that their rockstar pastry chef, Tariq Hannah, was listed as one of the top 10 Chocolatiers in North America.
Happy first day of Spring!
