But it wasn't over. Every day that he was gone was met with a phone call or a message, updating me on his adventures and telling me about his day. With every word said from across the pond, my sweet, innocent fling quickly turned into something more. The changing fall leaves were greeted with his return, and we immediately started dating. The rest, as they say, is history. This summer we got married, fittingly in a weekend filled with beach grazing and starry-night dancing.
Now that my favorite summer love has become a lifelong commitment, I'm on the hunt for a new fling. And, guys, I think I've found it. I've fallen in love again. This time, it's with Godiva.
Speaking of, they've got two new options on their roster. The Godiva Trufflelata transforms traditional shakes by taking a truffle and blending it in with the shake, and the Soft Serve incorporates Belgian chocolate into bites that melt in your mouth.
Next week, I'll be helping to celebrate the launch of these new treats at their summer fling party on Michigan Avenue, but first, Godiva is giving 5 Isn't That Charming readers a $25 gift card to their store. Can I get a collective "NomNomNom"? (That's code for "round of applause" in Godiva land.)
