Like most children, I had dreams about what I wanted to be when I grew up and it certainly wasn’t in the direction of business ownership.  However,  life takes us up and down many paths and most are filled with unexpected twists and turns, I wouldn’t change any of it.  I have been very lucky having met and married the love of my life;  having moved into a very warm and welcoming community such as Culpeper, Virginia; having raised two successful adult children and adopting four quirky pugs and a cat.  Being a business owner has had its challenges and its blessings, and even though I am mostly behind the scenes, I am glad that we have been able to bring so much joy to so many faces through the chocolates we sell.
