The Sweetest Gift

On Friday night the sweetest, most unexpected gift arrived on my doorstep:
Dairy free gourmet truffles and a dairy free gourmet chocolate bar!  

 Coconut vegan truffles and acai vegan truffles

I had already eaten 2 before I thought to take a picture. They are so so good!

My best friend Aimee sent this to me totally out of the blue just because she wanted to put a smile on my face.  I am one lucky girl to have her as my best friend. We have been friends for close to 20 years- since our Freshman year in high school.  Over the years she has been the one person I can call at 2am for any reason (and I have).  She is the one I can go to for ANYTHING and she doesn't laugh at me or judge me.   We don't always agree -there a lot of things we do disagree about, but we have never had a fight.  We don't hold grudges against one another for any reason (such as having to cancel plans, or not being the first to call the other that week), and I don't have to worry that I have upset or offended her. She knows me better than I know myself some days, and she gives me far more credit than I deserve. 
 She has also been the most supportive person when it comes to my dairy issue (other than my husband and parents).  She will go out of her way to make sure that I can eat at gatherings- even adapting recipes so I can enjoy them.  And now she has gone and found these amazing dairy free ( and vegan) dark chocolate truffles that I swear are heaven sent!  They are so delicious and you cannot tell there is no dairy in them- they taste just like the real thing!  (And I promise you, I won't be sharing these:-) )

So to my best friend I say thank you so much for thinking of me, and for putting another smile on my face:-)  You're the BEST!!
