This time #GiveLove started with Hello


Lindt HELLO, loves me enough to give me all the chocolate. I have good enough sense to share and not eat it all. They must know it's my birfday and therefore wanted to share all the affiliate links with me. 

I sat in  my ford, ready to pee my pants and about to have a meltdown. Headed to Galveston for the weekend, a blog conference was in my future. Stalled on 45, I didn't know why. I only knew I'd been sittin' for over and hour. Much sweet tea later had led me to that moment. The traffic eventually dispersed and I drove. Its as if I'd drove for hours. I whiped into a prakin' lot only to run out the car into the store. I almost knock an elderly lady tryin' to find the restroom. I mutter my apologies. Bathroom used, I wonder around the store lookin' for chocolate. I know I'm runnin' late and must hurry. It's a good thing I've had this chocolate and know what it looks like I told myself.

I purchased my Lindt HELLO chocolate and then I'm was on my way. Back to my car I rushed. To continue the hours drive left to Galveston. I sat through the openin' speech, all the while wonderin' what I would do with my new chocolate.

Hours later I sat in a hotel room catchin' up with Kay. She was to be my roomate for the conference. I'd met her a year prior at the same conference. We chatted, we generally caught up. The conference came and went and I was left to myself in Galveston. That's when the idea hit me. It'd been a while since I had done my GiveLove campaign. I'd been itchin' to bring it back. Hmm, this would be the prefect time I thought. It was settled. 

I awoke early Sunday Mornin'. Pause, I overslept. I wrote out my letters as I would any other time. Only this time I had a little treat to add to each letter. I was beyond excited. I met up with another fellow blogger and fran; Addie. We walked, we chatted, we ate and we sight saw Galveston. We both had decided to stay and extra night since neither had been to that part of the Texas Gulf. I informed her of my GiveLove challenge. She was intrigued. So we roamed from the Seawall to Broadway and everywhere we stepped we hid letters. Anonymous love letters that we hoped someone would find when they are feelin' down and it would brighten the day they were havin'. That they would open the Lindt HELLO chocolate and the cuteness of it all would bring a smile to the faces of all.
