Thank you to Lindt for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Lindt HELLO! All opinions are my own.
It Started with HELLO, that’s how Tyler’s and my relationship started, as most do. But I don’t know if I’ve ever shared the story with you. It was a little over 4 years ago and I had just moved to the D.C. area to be a nanny. I didn’t know anyone up there other than my aunt and her family but my Memaw (that’s what we call my grandmother) did and she decided to play matchmaker.
My Memaw knew that Tyler lived in the D.C. area and she knew him and his family from when my uncle was pastor at their church when Tyler was in middle school. Since she is all high tech she got on Facebook and sent Tyler my information and said my granddaughter just moved to D.C. and you should call her. Well lucky for us, he listened, and called me to say Hello and see if I wanted to hang out. Lucky for him I thought he had a good voice so I called him back. A couple weeks later we met up at the movies and had our first official, Hello, in person. It all started with Hello. And from there it was history. We were engaged a year later and married a year after that. We’ve been married two years now and always remember to thank Memaw for setting us up.
The other day I had spent a few days away from Tyler helping out my aunt so on my way home I wanted to pick up a special treat for him. I stopped by the store and grabbed a variety of these HELLO Lindt Chocolates.
Lindt HELLO chocolate comes in enticing flavors, inspired by classic desserts, including:
• Caramel Brownie
• Strawberry Cheesecake
• Crunchy Nougat
• Cookies & Cream
They come in 3 different forms, bars, sticks and the mini-stick bags. I love the mini-sticks because they are perfect for a quick treat and the bag has a variety of chocolates so you get to try all of them!
