It took me a long time, but I finally got my blog up and running! I hope you'll pay a visit and leave some comments.

Everywhere we look, all we hear about is the economy, the economy, the economy. Well, I'm tired of hearing about how bad it is. I'd rather light a candle in the darkness than complain about the fact that darkness is there!

High quality chocolates are a 'luxury' anyone can afford. How do you want to spend your money? Do you want to spend it on a Hershey's bar or something of better quality?
