Last weekend I poured glass upon glass of champagne to close down my year-long Champagne & Chocolate Fridays tradition with about 40 friends and family! We had amazing chocolate desserts made by amazing friends. More amazing friends brought more chocolate and more champagne. It was a night to remember, for sure.
In my one year of doing C&C Fridays, I only missed two. One was when I was in the hospital (weird that they won’t let you have champagne and chocolate when they think you have a heart condition), and the other was just a couple weeks later when one Friday night I cut a huge chunk out of my right thumb while cooking dinner. That ruined my evening, to say the least. So other than that, I did it EVERY week. Not all C&Cs are posted here, because a few of them were private. Most people participated in them when I’d post the entries on Facebook and I loved, loved, loved when folks shared what THEY were toasting to on a particular weekend.
While the weekly tradition is over, I certainly won’t stop eating chocolate and drinking champagne. I just won’t be spotlighting it. It’s a fun way to treat yourself and an even better to take a moment each week for a little gratitude. I’m so glad I took the time.
