Let There Be Chocolate
Cakes sure likes a party. Book club was at my place last night, and there was no way she was going to bed before she got to say hi to everybody. She is absolutely in love with Sandra, who showed up with strawberries and liquid chocolate, as well as a divine box of chocolates. She only went to bed after she had stuck her entire face into a bowl of chocolate, and I had given her my word we would save her some “party cheese”. Sure enough, the kid doesn’t forget a thing. This morning she woke up and came down the stairs to find me in the kitchen. The first words out of her mouth: “did your friends eat all the chocolate?” You should have seen her beam when I replied that we had indeed saved something for her.
I’m so happy we started the book club. Next month marks my 3-year blogging anniversary (I just realized as I posted this, it's my 500th post!). The birth of my blog was also the beginning of my friendship with several of the wonderful women in the club. As we sat back last night, talking a bit about the book, a lot about everything else, people comfortably helping themselves to what they need in the kitchen, getting their own coats, I was so thankful. I feel like I’ve known them for longer than three years; I look forward to their friendship for many years to come.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend everyone! We are staying put, having the family over for dinner, keeping it simple. May the days be sunny, and the bunny bring lots of chocolate.
