The Sweetest Thing Blogfest




It's super ironic that I'm writing this post, because I don't really like sweet things.

Candy? Never eat it. I'd rather eat raw green beans.

Soda? Can't stand it. Give me plain water. Even better, plain seltzer water.

I do, however, have a special place in my heart for Mozartkugeln. You can read all about them here.

I first tried them while on vacation in Austria; one bite, and I was hooked. They are these perfect little round bits of happiness, made up of pistachio marzipan, hazlenut nougat, milk and dark chocolate. I know. Fricken heavenly.



And, since we've got a bunch of sweet romance writers on this blog hop, I'll share an absolutely, 100% true sweet romance story. One day, I came home from work to find that my husband had bought me a navy blue beaded chiffon dress, the sort of dress you'd wear to a formal wedding. He bought it because he thought it would look nice with my hair.

Then, he presented me with an opal and sapphire ring, because it matched the dress!



Really. With sweetness like that in my life, who needs candy?

Now, remember to hop on back to Kelly and Beth and visit the rest of the sweeties!

  2. That is the sweetest story and the cutest ring! I'm sending a link to my husband right now ;) Total hint. Haha.

    Thanks for participating and that candy sounds awesome, but I wish I didn't like sweets.

    1. Remember, the ring has to match a dress. Or shoes. or, maybe a slice of blueberry pie.

  3. What a great story. Maybe I'm glad the sweets you describe are available in Austria. Less temptation.

    1. They can be mail ordered. Not that I have *any* first hand knowledge of that.
