In Raleigh, NC at Crabtree Mall, near the food court, across from the APPLE store, sits a little shop. It's a sweet shop. It's a chocolate shop. It's the GODIVA shop. I first indulged when I was working as a college student at Belk at the other end of the mall. I had to pass by this little sweet spot every day on my way to the employee parking deck. I rarely entered unless they were giving free samples, because truly...it's an indulgence...in more ways than one. Did I mention the APPLE store is located directly across? Fast forward 10 years or so. Occasionally, the dear husband of mine is forced to go to APPLE for, I don't know, technical "stuff." And he has been known to meander across the way to this little shop and bring me some of the little treasures. What a treat it is to see the little gold box!!! Well...I'm telling you all of this because he did it again. Just last week. It was a wonderful surprise, totally unexpected...and the perfect day for chocolate!!! (ok...ALL days are perfect for chocolate) And for my little gold box tied with a little chocolate brown ribbon...He chose the one's he thought I'd like the best. They are all so decadently (is that a word?) delicious! But, if I must choose a favorite, here it is...
This little beauty is a "key lime dark chocolate truffle." Is there anything left to say? A napkin just wouldn't do...had to go for the fine china!
You need not tell me I'm blessed. I am married to a man who is selfless, full of life, and full of love. And sometimes...love is little.
I love you DDW!
