Wonderful, beautiful, sweet chocolate.
I feel sorry for any woman who hasn't discovered the healing that chocolate can bring. I feel sorry for any woman who hasn't discovered the healing that Gilmore Girls can bring too.
And put them both together, and you've ended the day in the most perfect way. Anger melts away. Darkness brightens up. Heavy heart is lifted. Everything in the world is better. The Earth is back on it's axis.
When we were growing up candies were few and far between. Halloween and Easter was when we saw the majority of candy in our home. At Christmas we got a book of Life Savers, and sometimes if we were lucky and went to the bank with our mom they would send out a piece of salt water taffy, but that was about it.
So when I became an adult I continued the tradition of self deprivation, unknowingly, to myself.
Until one day.
One blessed day.
I was visiting my little brother's family in Iowa and they had a bowl of M&M's. Wow. Strange. And it was an oddly awakening experience to me to see that they would just walk by and take a handful whenever they felt like it. It was then that I realized
I am an adult.
I could buy chocolate and put it in a bowl if I wanted to TOO!
As soon as I got home I started buying M&M's in large bags and putting them in bowls around my house. Wow. How liberating!
And ever since then I've had a love affair with chocolate.
It holds my hand every month when I start cramping. It brings a smile to my lips when I've had a rough day. It gives me energy when I am feeling worn out.
Chocolate and me, we are like this *crosses her fingers*. I will forever love chocolate. Dark, milk, white, you name it. I'm not picky.
I just have to be careful how much lovin' I give it because it's making me more to love.
