favorite things

The different forms of therapy, at least in my world:

and taking a different perspective.

A long walk.

The sound of water.

(or better yet, being in the water... but I'll be content with just listening to the sound of it for now)

A quiet reading corner.

Random affirmations.

And of course, chocolate... in various forms.

Truffles from my favorite chocolate place, French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Asheville, NC.

(take note of the little card that reads: "a sacred space for chocophiles".)

Liquid truffle - an insanely good hot chocolate - from the same chocolate heaven, French Broad Chocolate Lounge.

(don't forget the shortbread for dipping)

Gelato cake from Dojo Gelato, Cincinnati

(Chocolate cake base from Take the Cake, chocolate gelato, and Kahlua-spiked cream.)

I feel better already.

Pin It!

Hi, Mia. Found this through Camille's blog.

Hi Mia,
I love how you treasure these simple pleasures.

The French Broad chocolates came. They are the best chocolates I have ever relished! I told Ken we need to see if they'd be interested in opening a shop in Northside. I would love to try a liquid truffle!

I'll be in Asheville for 26 hours this week before making my way out for our yoga retreat. Shockingly, I've never been to the chocolate lounge, but I'll have to put it on my list for this week!

Love the pics and peek into yoou world Mia. :)

Tibibord: Hi! Small world, isn't it.

Kim: So what did you think of the French Broad Chocolates? Do you have a favorite? By the way, I was able to re-create the lavender honey liquid truffle... it was heavenly! It was not an exact re-creation, but close enough, I think. :)

Sharon: I hope you found time to visit the chocolate lounge! But, seeing your pictures from your previous Asheville retreat, I can also understand how you wouldn't want to leave the retreat place. :)
