Advent Calender Swap!/アドベントカレンダースワップ

In my previous posting, I told you that I joined a swap called Advent Calender Swap where you send 24 little gifts to your partner and reveive the same from someone, and you open one gift per day till Christmas Eve!  I sent my package to Germany and I got mine from the States!  Emily (I think it's her name), thank you sooooo much for your nice package!!!  Thank you!!! :D
Lots of gifts!
I picked up this one for Day 1.
I kind of knew that this was exactly what I wanted by touching it.  Before I opened it, I made a cup of coffee to go with the gift hoping it's what I think.  And...
Ta-da!!!  I knew it was a chocolate!!! :D  Mmm...looks so delicious!  It's a milk chocolate with caramel filling.  Mmm...looks so delicious!  (Did I just said that twice? lol)  One third of it was gone sooner after I opened it, and then I found it on the back of the package saying...
"Take time to slow down and feel yourself melt with each bite"??  Sorry it didn't happen.  It didn't take time with me at all as I was so fast eating it! lol  Oh, but I felt myself melt with each bite though. ;)  With the rest of the chocolate, I will try to take time. :D

My December started wonderfully!  I hope you had a nice start of December, too! :D  Have a nice weekend!

以前の記事で書きましたが、ドイツのブロガーCaddiさんが企画したアドベントカレンダースワップに参加しました。これは、24個のちょっとしたプレゼントをパートナーに贈り、誰かから同じくプレゼントを24個受け取る。そして、12月に入ったらクリスマスイブまでの24日間で、一日1つずつプレゼントを開けていくという素敵な企画です。私はドイツの方に贈り、先日アメリカの方から素敵なプレゼントを頂きました。毎日ひとつずつプレゼントを開けるというルールなので、忍耐との戦いです(笑)

一日目のプレゼントは、触った感じで「もしやこれは私が大好きなアレでは?」と思ったものを選びました。念のためコーヒーを入れて準備万端。開けてみるとやっぱり!チョコレートでした!嬉しい~☆あっと言う間に三分の一ほど平らげたところで、裏に『時間をかけてゆっくりと、一口ごとにとろける感覚を味わって』というようなことが書いてあることに気づく・・・。時間をかけて?あっという間に食べちゃったよ(笑)とろける感覚はしっかりと味わいましたが。残りを食べる時は、じっくりと味わって食べたいと思います。

皆様、素敵な12月、素敵な週末をお過しください☆

↓いつもありがとうございます。押していただけると励みになります☆
