What Octavia Spencer and I Have in Common

Norman Love Chocolates

So, you’re probably wondering what Octavia Spencer and I do have in common, right? And Morgan Freeman and Tina Fey, too. Chocolate. David brought home a few chocolates from work yesterday for Amber and me – two each. And they were delicious. I don’t know what flavors Amber had, but I had a vanilla cupcake one and a peanut butter and jelly one. They were rich, decadent, melt-in-your mouth goodness. And simply gorgeous to look at.ย  Definitely candy for grown-ups.

So I had to do a little research today. Turns out they were from Norman Love Confections. And guess what was in some of the gift bags given out at the Academy Awards- boxes ofย  Norman Love chocolates.

Granted, they are far from cheap, but for a special occasion a box of these would be heavenly. And if I ever happen to be in Fort Meyers, Florida, you can bet the Chocolate Salon will be on my list of places to visit.

    They sound wonderful. I love it when my better half surprises me with these types of gifts. I don’t need a lot of gifts or expensive gifts, but little things like this make my day. And I never complain when I get the leftovers from the office. They eat better than I do on most days ๐Ÿ™‚ Now I’m hoping I get some chocolate soon!

    Delectable! And as an occasional treat, I think it’s great to surprise someone — or yourself — with things like this. That’s why I don’t mind paying $3 for a cupcake now and then, or grabbing a $4 latte. I don’t do it all the time, so why not indulge once in a while? Life is too short not to!
