Dear Friends....and....Amazing Chocolate!

April 23, 2009

During Easter Break, The Farmer and I found ourselves in the San Francisco area.
Business required that we be there over night, and so we filled the trip with some great fun as
well as the necessary. The weather was wonderful, a bit cold, but still amazing.
After looking at equipment and meeting with customers, we drove to the
most delightful town, Carmel By The Sea. AMAZING!!!

Our dear dear friends, The Davidsons live in Carmel, and so this was the
perfect time to catch up and see the sights.
The Davidsons are the kind of friends that, even though you have not seen
each other for many years, you pick right up where you left off. We love them!
It was wonderful to see them and their beautiful family.
After a yummy dinner together, The Farmer and I drove to Monterey
to spend the night.


The next morning brought great sight seeing.....

Some catching up with a soul sister....
And a little planning of the next combined family vacation...
so the kids can catch up too.
Next, it was off to...

LuLa's Chocolates! This the the Davidson's business in Carmel.
Gourmet chocolate????!!! Can it get any better than that?
We really had to watch The Farmer....he was sticking his fingers in everything!;)
Can you blame him???
A wall of ribbon??? How could you not love going to work at LuLa's?
I have decided that I NEED this wall of ribbon in my house.

Every box is beautifully wrapped....if you are interested in trying a little
Lula's Chocolate....go to will not be disappointed.
Then it was time to return to San Francisco to catch the plane to Phoenix.
We passed through the artichoke capitol of the world...and if you know us.....
you know that we had to stop at the local farmers market. There were the most
amazing strawberries....huge and beautiful.
Artichokes as far as the eye could see....
And fried artichoke hearts at a roadside stand....
A perfect taste of heaven for us.
It was a wonderful trip...the best part.....catching up with some great friends...
and the chocolate was worth the trip too!
