Five days of gratitude: day four

NatureGrrl 2014

Day four of five days of gratitude. Here's what I'm grateful for today: 1. Words. I love writing. I love reading. I love learning new words.

A kid in a candy store

See's Candies

Disclosure: this chocolate fantasy is brought to you by the sparkling new See's Candies at Easton Town Center, where I attended a VIP blogger event last night. Enjoy. I know I sure did.
