Having a kid has led me to rethink a lot of things in life and one of them is Valentine’s Day. I’ve never been one to have too much enthusiasm about the holiday but Jackson loves it (and any holiday for that matter, you should have seen the excitement over whether or not the ground-hog saw his shadow this week). And honestly over the years I’ve come to appreciate it in my own way, check back later in the week for a post about that.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, the way to a women’s heart in particular this pregnant women’s heart is through food if you are local to South Jersey or maybe want to plan a romantic weekend here don’t miss these Valentine’s Day Wine Events.
While I can’t indulge in any wine this Valentine’s day I can indulge in some chocolate. So when Chocolat Frey contacted me about trying their chocolates, I couldn’t help but scream yes. And I’m really glad I did because once the package arrived this week I realized that this was the same chocolate I had in Switzerland 15 years ago when I visited in high school. The chocolate was just as good as I remembered it and took me back to a spring break spent exploring Switzerland. Starting this month Chocolat Frey will be available in the U.S at select retailers.
Here are some posts I enjoyed this week:
