>I’m not a morning person. Never have been. Never will be. UNLESS there is a really good and selfish reason for me to be up in the morning. Selfish as in – it’s for me, not as in I need to get my kids to school but need that cup of coffee first before I can function … that’s just my morning in general.

But this morning, OMG – wait … I’m having heart palpitations … I received an email that I ALMOST deleted. OMG. I can believe I almost did that.

No. I didn’t get THAT email – from an agent about my book they are reading … I wish though …

I found out that chocolates are being sent to Santa in the North Pole. WHAT????  Yep, I can see that eyebrow being raised. There was a cute picture of a soldier stationed in the North Pole … I thought I would read it … only to discover that the chocolate is being sent from Calgary and that it comes from Belgium. But that’s not the best part!!!!!!

The shop is DIRECTLY across the road from where I work!!!  How did I NOT know this!  I cross the street into a little plaza for my starbucks … if I had only known, I would have walked further and discovered this amazing chocolate shop. OMG.

I found this on their website … I’m in love …
