Visions of Chocolate!

I was able to have a very relaxing hour this morning with peppermint tea and chocolate kisses, a very interesting bio-business program about Google on Bloomberg TV, and during the commercials I thumbed through my January Issue of In Style Magazine. Yes, I said peppermint tea and chocolate kisses in the morning! It's Saturday. *Shrug* Who's gonna know? I have a certain gluttonous way of eating kisses too. I grab a bunch peel the silver paper and then eat them in bunches... don't ask what a bunch is, it will disgust you, let's just say a bunch is more than one. I LOVE chocolate! Was that TMI? We're long time friends though, you don't mind. Anyway, my point is... I was inspired by a kiss. I've been thinking about adding more color to my very gray and black wardrobe (See this week's Steel post), and I will! But... maybe Chocolate can be my new staple color. Chocolate is my new Black!
