ChocLit Guild @ Sweet Bouquets

ChocLit Guild @ Mt. Hope Chronicles

ChocLit Guild met this past week at my second mom, Debi’s, house. [She has a beautiful blog called Sweet Bouquets.] I wish I had taken a few pictures of her garden which was looking spectacular! Her house is always so lovely. And she even made a delicious dessert for us (with chocolate, of course).

[My third mom, Judy, is on the right. I must be a handful to need so many moms!]

Aunt Holly worked hard to get Sweden to sleep.

The rest of us relaxed and talked. We were missing a few of our regulars (missed you, Jessye, Cheris, and Tinsa!!), and one of our long-distance members (we always miss you, Danielle!).

Thanks, Susan. One of my favorite book club meetings was when you joined us! :D Shannon *does* look amazing, doesn't she? I'll pass the compliment along to her. :) (I know *I* looked extremely sleep-deprived for, well, years. LOL!! Wait, I don't think I've ever recovered.)
