Coffee & Reading the Morning Paper

We hope that everyone has/had a delicious, beautiful, meaningful Thanksgiving dinner, wherever you are in the world! We are grateful to YOU, dear readers! Thank you for your support this year and always 🙂 Black Friday starts tomorrow, so we want to give you some great gift ideas for your loved ones. Chocolate is always a good idea.
  • Bar & Cocoa has an amazing selection of holiday chocolate gifts.
    • Look at this adorable peppermint hot cocoa packaging, and this mint chocolate “twig” from Soma Chocolate Makers, who we LOVE. All of Bar & Cocoa’s holiday chocolate is on this page. (This is our go-to craft chocolate site, as you probably know, and we’ve been very pleased with their customer service and shipping.)
      • DEALS: Friday the 26th: Spend $175 worth of chocolate gifts and get a FREE chocolate tasting virtual event ticket for December 17. +If you spend $175 on Saturday instead, you get a FREE Cacaoteca Bundle (5 bars)!
  • In the mood for something even more luxurious?? Try a Vosges Haut Chocolate “holiday pick” from the chocolatier, Katrina Markoff, herself! Deals happening all weekend. We’re eyeing the “Ritual Collection for Peace” box, filled with the “vegan truffle collection, Healing Waters bath salts, a Linnea’s Lights votive candle, Palo Santo Gift Bundle, a feather and a guided ritual card,” OR perhaps the Prima Materia Truffle Collection (image below); both look incredible. We have thoroughly relished these Vosges chocolate boxes in the past — it’s like an entire chocolate experience.

Quote for the Weekend

Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.
