Your Chocolate Priestess rarely gets a vacation. By vacation I mean going away from home with a loved one (I don't like traveling alone) without the obligations to see family or sell books. I don't believe I've had a vacation in well over five years, probably seven years. We used to get away right after Christmas and go somewhere for a few days for our wedding anniversary but since changing my profession from academic to full-time author, I've had to do conventions and promote my books. Not the last week of May and the beginning of June this year, nope we went on a vacation to celebrate 20 years of marriage. We went to Indianapolis that is an easy day trip for us but we stayed there for six nights and seven days and got to explore that section of Indiana.
But let me be honest, I can't just stop working period. I'd go crazy. No laptop of my own meant I couldn't write but I did find some chocolate shops in Indy and we visited three of them. So for the next three weeks, one day a week, I'm going to take you "On the Road" with me to visit these three locations. Later throughout the rest of the year we'll do some Saturday Sacraments with them as well since every shop gave us some samples to bring home.
The shop wasn't difficult to find with our GPS and I'm sure folks who live up in northern Indy could find it easily. But if you live and Indianapolis or nearby and haven't discovered Abbott's Also, you need to go check it out this summer and give them some off-season business.
