Hey Y'all I'm Taylor and I blog over at The Presutti's I absolutely adore Vivian and her lovely blog. 
I was very very honored and excited when she asked me to guest post. 
Today's Friday! I thought I'd do a super fun post. About.... Chocolate! 
 Why, Because us women love it!


I read online that... 99% of women love chocolate. Chocolate makes us feel good. Chocolate is good for us. Yes I said it. Chocolate enhances sex life. (ladies, tell your husbands :*) So in honor of all those lovely details that make chocolate so great. I thought we'd celebrate and that I'd share some yummy recipes. :)
