About Me + One Chocolate Box

I started off One Chocolate Box in October 2011, and fully intended for it to be my personal blog. Somehow, it ended up being a book blog! After a year long hiatus, I've "relaunched" it as a personal blog in July 2013.

If you're wondering about the name, I wanted to come up with something that signified variety (because I wanted to write about life in general, experiences, travel, books, anything!) and yet still somehow represented me. I mean, I love chocolate. LOVE! Love, I tell you! Seriously, chocolate makes everything better... except Candy Crush. But anyway... variety + chocolate = One Chocolate Box.

I'm so clever aren't I? Would I ever consider renaming my blog?

Umm... yes. *sheepish grin*

Anyway, here's some other things about me, just in case you want to know more:

If you'd like to ask me anything, feel free to email me at onechocolatebox@gmail.com or leave a comment.

Thanks for stopping by! Seriously, thank you! :)

take care,

  5. Hi Toni. Long time no see (in the blogosphere anyhow; at least I see you are still on Instagram). I hope you'll be returning to blogging in the future, and I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. If you'd like to accept, check out this post. The beginning explains the award and the end has questions for you to answer if you're so inclined. No rush. I actually got my nomination like a year ago and am just now posting it. http://embracingadventure.com/2014/12/19/round-two-receiving-giving-liebster-blog-award/
