Seize the flowers and chocolate...

“Why not seize the pleasure at once? How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparation!”
Jane Austen, Emma

  1. Austen is never wrong! Love your additional photo comment - flowers AND chocolate are definitely a recipe for happiness!! ;)

  2. I agree but too often it costs me money as it ends up that I am seizing a shopping deal of some kind.

  3. Elizabeth--I agree with both your statements!

  4. Timaree--Ha! Yes, shopping deals can sometimes seem like pleasure, can't they? And sometimes they really are, like when I find a bargain on something I really need.

  5. A nod in the direction of Ms Austen. And then--yum that chocolate looks good--never seen it locally, but dark chocolate is my fave!

  6. Danielle--that chocolate WAS good. And I bought it in San Francisco, so if you go, you should look for it. :)
