Celebrate Your Friends -A Merci Chocolates Giveaway


You may not have known but this week is National Friendship Week! National Friendship week was started so that we remember to do something nice for our great friends!

I am so thankful for the friends in my life. Friends who make me laugh and assure me my children will grow up to be at least somewhat normal. Friends who kindly overlook my utter lack of crafting/scrapbokking and home decorating ability and love me anyway. Friends who will go along with almost every crazy idea I have, see the photo below.  (Yeah, I know none of us ever really run but wouldn’t a 5K that includes every hill in Knoxville be really, really fun?)  Friends who bring my family meals and check on me when I am sick. Friends who swear my hair looks great when it clearly does not.  You know, those kind of friends.


This week is the perfect time to show your appreciation to the amazing friends in your life with Merci’s fine European chocolates. I mean really,  what says “I’m so glad you’re my friend” like a hanging out eating yummy chocolate?

To help you celebrate Friendship Week I am giving away one Friendship Kit to a lucky reader. (You should probably share it with your friends, but as a fellow chocolate lover I understand… 🙂  )

The Friendship Kit will include:

  1. $25 Target gift card
  2. 7 ounce box of merci chocolates
  3. A picture frame to display a photo of you and your friends
  4. A chocolate scented candle

Use the rafflecopter form below to enter. Good Luck!
