For every season, there is …

Chocolate. I promise.

Cross my heart.

I am NOT deliberately trying to derail your New Year’s resolutions.


It’s just that I think you should know …

There are chocolate holidays on the horizon.

Sure, there’s Valentine’s Day.

And Mother’s Day follows shortly thereafter.

But sometimes, a woman needs more excuses to succumb to her urges—no, let’s call them “instincts.”

Your intuition knows when you need a nibble.

And quite frankly, a couple of heart-shaped-box holidays are not enough.
