Holiday Treats

12 Dec 2011

  A couple of months back I made a trip to San Francisco and of course enjoyed a little chocolate from the Ghirardelli store.  Have you had the decadent sipping chocolate?  It is divine.

Just curious, because my Mom used to say it all the time and I have caught myself saying it to my kids (even my boys) a time or two.  Now every time that cliche ... ...read more
