This is the story of a fine lady named Christine of One Kiss Creations.  She shares my love of chocolate and beads and is also a generous sweet human being.  We have followed each other's blogs for awhile now and I think it's interesting that we both find ourselves so busy in the summer with fishing, friends and family that our blog posts get less frequent than either of us or our followers would like.  Even so from time to time we think of each other and I know I wish she was a bit closer than 3000 miles away.

Recently I happened to mention missing Cadbury Fruit and Nut bars and she responded shortly thereafter that I should be watching my mail.  My mouth started salivating in anticipation and hope.  (You see she sent me chocolate once before of her local favorites that were amazing.  Is there such a thing as one's own chocolate angel?!)

I stood there with wet eyes when I opened the package, because she didn't send one... she sent THREE!  Quickly I hid them in my chocolate drawer, but of course after breaking off a row.  And... there was a long plain brown paper jewelry box that held treasures from her stash!  Agates!!  

Bead gift

We met through blogging, connect now through Facebook, and I hope with all my heart that we meet in person some day.  If we do I'm sure it will be over beads and lots of chocolate.  Check out this new bracelet of hers!  I think it looks like the gold wrapper on a chocolate bar.  Her ice cream inspiration sounds divine, doesn't it?
