It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

The weather is getting warmer, tiny buds are beginning to appear, daffodil shoots are peeking out of the ground, and, most importantly, candy is shaped like eggs. It may seem tiny and insignificant for some, but spring is a time for enjoying the little things, like breezes that don't freeze your eyeballs and sidewalks that aren't slippery with ice. One of my favorite things is dusting off my candy dish, purchased many years ago on the Rialto on a spring day in Venice, and filling it with chocolates wrapped in pastel foil. As a happy coincidence--or maybe it's springtime magic--Hershey's just happens to use foil that is the exact same shades of green, purple, yellow, blue, and pink as the tiny buds of Murano glass in my dish.

PS. the Reese's eggs have the perfect chocolate to peanut butter ratio. I take these things very seriously.


  1. Very nice. My 27-year old daughter lives for Easter because of the Cadbury eggs. Peeps might also play a role.

  2. Ah, Cadbury eggs...Why can't we have them all year round?
