The to-do list for today is nearly done, there's just one more thing to tick off...dessert
There's no cake baked nor nothing set and waiting in the fridge, so it'll be a choccy box raid tonight. I suspect I'll end up with a knock-off Snickers and a mug of hot chocolate
But what I really can't wait for is my box (or two) of @costellohellerstein truffles to arrive so I can have the real deal for a few nights on the trot
If you want to join me, I ain't sharing, so you best buy a box or two on their crowdfunding campaign (link in bio) because there's only a few days left before you'll have no choice but to pay the full price once again
The one I'm tucking into in this pic is the dark chocolate orange which Kingsley called a terribly posh Terry's chocolate orange. Let me emphasise the 'terribly posh' bit of that statement, because this truffle to a Terry's chocolate orange is what Center Parcs is to Butlins #food#foodie#fdblogger#honeybourneline#cheltenham#chocolate#truffles#chocolatetruffles#chocolateorange#dessert#pudding#costelloandhellerstein#poshchocolates#boxofchocolates#crowdfunding
Our Cranberry Cashew truffles are the ultimate sweet treat - amazingly rich, chewy and just slightly sweet 🍯🍫
Cranberries are one of the original superfoods, outranking most fruits and vegetables in disease-fighting antioxidants. Combined with cashews and 72% dark chocolate, this is the treat you’ll be hiding from the family! We sweeten our truffles with organic honey and just a dash of organic cane sugar, making it perfect for a snack or a guilt-free dessert!
I am so blessed! My family gave me presents for my birthday over the weekend, and each of them shows how well they know me. (FYI, it’s not my birthday yet, my Hebrew birthday was on Saturday.) @kylerroarksav gave me beautiful copper martini glasses. He knows copper, or it’s cousin, rose gold, is my favorite. So far I’ve enjoyed slushies out of these, maybe martinis will come later. 💚
@k9communication_ gave me a lovely bouquet of flowers, and she drove down and spent the better part of Saturday with me. That was so special, particularly since I don’t get to see her much since she got married. 💜
@ksrwanderer gave me two pair of decadent slipper socks, because Pacific Northwest fall and winter, duh. They are so soft and squishy and they feel like heaven for feet. ❤️ Jim gave me a stand for my hammered dulcimer. I’ve only wanted this for about 15 years. It is amazing to put my instrument on a proper stand for a change. Perhaps I’ll pick up playing it again now. He also gave me a pair of white high top wedges. My floral ones are one of my favorite shoes, but don’t go with a lot of outfits, these solve that problem. Comfy and stylish, love ‘em! 💙
And then there’s @kalebroarkmusic He was the last to give me his gift, and he started out by saying, “I decided to give you this because somebody else couldn’t.” The moment I saw it I gasped for breath, mouth gaping, and began to cry. We both stood up and embraced. While he was comforting me, his sister lovingly teased him about his “tiny black heart” knowing how to connect with his mama (this is an ongoing family thing, he is not a very emotionally demonstrative guy). As I sobbed into his shoulder, I whispered into his ear, “Your heart is just the right size.” 🖤 Scroll through the pictures if you want to see what he gave me.
I love my family so much, with or without gifts. But I do feel very loved and blessed by them. 💙💙💙 #birthdaypresents#soblessed#timewithfamily#ilovethem#ilovemyfamily#theyknowme#thoughtfulgifts#coppermartiniglass#freshflowers#fuzzysocks#hammereddulcimer#hightopwedges#chocolate#chocolatetruffles @halletts_chocolates
