Like oodles of other women out there I am a full fledged chocolate addict. So, you can bet I’m going to run, not walk, to the Chocolate Sunday event that will be held in my lovely hometown Tampa Bay area on January 23rd! Two words particularly caught my eye when I read the press release…CHOCOLATE TASTINGS! I can’t think of a more fabulous thing for an event to revolve around than chocolate…Can you?
If you’re going to be anywhere near the Tampa bay area on the 23rd, I highly suggest you come join me at this delicious sounding event! We’re even giving away a pair of tickets valued at $40.00!
