Chocolate and Tea and Me

A week or so ago, I won a giveaway on Crystal's blog. This morning, the mailman left this in my mailbox:

Swiss chocolate, tea, and a handmade keychain that will be perfect for holding my keys while walking Bailey? You had me at chocolate.

I ate the chocolate for breakfast (because I am an adult and I am allowed to do that, Mom) which made me think of my short study abroad in Switzerland, which made me think of how that trip finally got me away from a lying, cheating, scumbag of an ex-boyfriend and allowed me to move on with my life. I am a fan of Swiss chocolate, is what I'm saying.

Thanks Crystal! You made my day!

P.S. Crystal's blog is awesome, and you should read it if you aren't already. She writes about some of my favorite things (Canada, food, cats in sweaters, husbands who are police officers), and some of my less-favorite things that I can still absolutely relate to (dogs that panic and bark all day when you leave them alone, jobs that are four-letter words).

P.P.S. Thumbs up to the French & U.S. Postal Services. Crystal's package arrived at my house in Texas in about a week.*

*This may impress me because I picture overseas post getting to my house through a combination of old-fashioned carriages, rickety boats, and the Pony Express. But still. Good job postal services!

How awesome that you won. And chocolate, you can't go wrong with that. Glad you have a yummy, empowering reminder of how you kicked a scumbag to the curb!

That is definitely impressive postal service work!

And congratulations for winning! That is so exciting. I love Crystal's blog.

Thanks so much for the shout out :)

I'm so glad you liked the package and that it arrived before 2012 was over. Let me know how you like the tea :)

I love your blog as well (and Deidre, yours too!)

I think I might go have some chocolate for breakfast now too. And then I might put a sweater on my cat because it's a wee bit chilly here this morning ;)
