A day off

That's what I took today, that much coveted and yet somehow sacrilegious treasure to an owner of a very young and very small company. Well, it wasn't entirely a day off, but a few admin tasks and some organisation of the chocolate workshop is as little work as I have done in a day for at least 6 weeks, since we started selling Choco Q truffles at the Usaquen market. 

It's a humble beginning for my beloved chocolate business, but one that has me busily making chocolates, sourcing packaging, printing stickers, sorting the logistics of transportation, and attempting a little marketing on the side. Please don't misunderstand me, I'm not complaining. Every day spent making chocolates is a day spent in my kitchen doing something amazing. Even the worst days chocolate making are better than the best days I ever spent in an office. Still, it was lovely to not do any of that today. Instead, I went for a run in the park (a rare treat as the park is in no way close to our apartment), indulged in a long and large breakfast, read my book, and got a $5 walk-in-manicure for my poorly treated hands. As I made no chocolates today, I have no recent photos to show you, so here's something I prepared earlier:

So glad you took a day off! I know I feel guilty doing it with my business but you just need it for sanity's sake! I'll need a week off after my double wedding weekend starting tomorrow!! Have a wonderful weekend!
