My friend and her husband sent me a gift just because. I really don't know why God has blessed me with such sweet, thoughtful friends but I do and I am so incredibly grateful. They sent me and Mat the hot chocolate mix from Mindy's Hot Chocolate and chocolates from my favorite chocolatier, Vosges. I just went to Mindy's recently and posted it here.
So this is what heaven tastes like... it is perfect on a cold, rainy evening with my dog curled up against me on the couch.
The cocoa tastes exactly like it does at the restaurant.
I was curious so I tasted the cocoa mix itself and it tastes like little crumbles of dark chocolate with cocoa powder. I cannot put my finger on it. They must have crack in it. It is rich and divine.
While I was drinking my cocoa, I noticed that the sunset was really pretty this evening. I think I'm having one of those reflective Oprah ah-ha moments. Breathe in a little deeper and slower, trying to soak in the simple things, and enjoying myself and my cocoa moments. I'm so happy it's the weekend.
