Chocolate Mousse for the Win

May 14, 2017
I've had a brilliant weekend, basking along the shores of Lake Huron, powering through a list that seemed overwhelming at first but quickly became 'The Thing I Will Overcome'.

The effort of getting a book out into the big wide world does take its toll on a person, so when I needed to get away from it all (or, more honestly, get away from the things holding me back from getting everything done) a dear friend and fellow writer tossed me in her little blue car and drove me to her family's cottage—where we were joined by another friend—for three days of agenda-free get-er-done.

The only planned event was to go out for dinner together on Saturday night, which turned into a celebrate The Church in the Wildwood event...because she brought along the book and sweet-talked the waitress into taking our picture.

After packing away an embarrassing amount of fish and chips, that little doll of a waitress came creeping up with a bowl of chocolate mousse and whipped cream, a little candle flickering as she set it down in front of me.

"Congratulations on your book," she said.

How sweet is that?!

Very sweet! Chocolatey and rich and mmmmmm.

I feel tremendously blessed. By good friends and good chocolate.

And I couldn't have gotten to where I am today without a whole lot of help from both of them!


  1. I love being part of your journey and the friendship we have formed because of it 😊

    1. Couldn't have gotten here without you ❤️Your support and encouragement has made a world of difference for me!
