There was a time in my past when I was known as one of the “champagne sisters.”

Champagne is my drink of choice but I rarely imbibe now that I’m responsible and mature.  Sad how those glamorous tendencies leave us when we grow older, but I’m sure they’ll return when we become older still.

Another indulgence I’ve loved throughout my life is truffles.  Rich, velvety, smooth chocolate that melts in your mouth.

Pair champagne and truffles and you’ll have an experience you’ll never forget.

Husby knows about my not-so-secret love affair with champagne and truffles.  We’ve spent many luxurious evenings together where I paired the two and he witnessed the effect they had on me.

One night I was sitting in my comfy chair in the rumpus room with Husby.  He was watching something on the TV and I was sitting with my laptop doing something, I don’t know, writing a blog post or updating my Etsy shop or taking inventory…I don’t remember.  But I had a glass of cheap wine on the table beside me.  Might I emphasize “cheap” wine?  Oh, it wasn’t as bad as Ripple, but when someone like me wants to have a glass of wine, someone like me isn’t going to spend a fortune to have it.

So there we were, having a lovely evening together, doing our own things together.  Husby got up from his chair and left the room for a small instant and returned with something in his hand.

“Would you like some chocolate with your wine?”

What?!  Of course!  When he opened his hands I saw the chocolate that was worthy of my cheap wine.  Tootsie Rolls.

It’s the little things in life that make it all worthwhile.  A glass of wine with a few Tootsie Rolls?  Heaven.  Granted, it’s not champagne and truffles, but it’s the thought that counts.  Life is good.

Happy weekend! My wish for you is complete bliss, or cheap bliss. Either way you’ll be happy.
