Dealing with the loss of a beloved pet can be extremely devastating! Before I adopted my cat from the ASPCA in 2009 I never really understood how close a pet can get to you. My cat (who I named Cat [don’t judge]) was truly one of my best friends, and the loss of him over a year ago has…

How This Blog Got Its Name

The NameSince starting this blog I’ve had several people ask me why the blog has this particular name.  People who don’t know me well often think that I work with actual chocolate in some sort of way, but unfortunately I’m not that lucky.  I spent more months than I’d like to admit thinking of just…
