Celebrate Friendship with... Chocolate

Happy Friday! With summer drawing to an end, The Baron and I are spending time with close friends while our schedules still allow. Not everyone keeps childhood friends throughout the years due to a host of variables... but when folks are able to do so, it really is a special thing. I met The Baron's best friend, G, last year and I remember being so nervous to meet him. Thankfully, we soon became friends and had some time to get to know one another. Both of them grew up down the street from each other when they were kids and have since maintained a very strong and close bond. I like seeing The Baron light up when he talks about the crazy fun they've had together with the usual pranking, joking, and just silly antics they got into. When we found out G and his partner were moving out west earlier this year, we were sad to see them go. Helping them move and packing up their moving truck didn't help either. But at least we're getting the opportunity to spend time with them and check out their new surroundings! Friendships... they are something that should be treasured and I'm thankful to have my share. Even better is when someone you love invites you to share theirs too.  With all the fuzzy feelings of friendship in the air, I've partnered up with Merci European Chocolate who's highlighting friendships of all kinds this month. To celebrate, we're giving away a Friendship Kit!

This Merci European Chocolate item features a fine assortment of European chocolates. The assorted chocolate box features seven varieties of rich European chocolates. This finest chocolate collection comes with 20 individually wrapped pieces.
For this giveaway, we're sharing what makes our friends special and meaningful to us. A random winner will be chosen and receive the following in their friendship kit... because what's a better thank you [or 'Merci!'] than chocolate?!

  • 7 ounce box of Merci Chocolates
  • a picture frame to display a photo of you and your friends
  • a chocolate scented candle
  • a $25 gift card

If you’re interested in participating, leave a comment describing your best friend and what makes them special or meaningful to you. A winner will be randomly chosen on Sunday, September 1st at midnight [CST] and announced on Monday, September 2nd to claim their prize via email.

Good luck and I can't wait to hear all about your friendships!
