Random acts of chocolate

Ever been the target of a random act of chocolate?
That was me last night. Got home after a looong day and opened my screen door to find this:

Imagine my surprise. Inside were these:

The gift came from my friend Ansley who lives in Chicago. She happened to be passing through Knoxville and decided to pay me a visit. She came bearing sweets in honor of the chocolate drawer I kept while at the News Sentinel and one I have now at UT. (Ansley and I met while we were both reporters at the newspaper.)

The thing is, I hadn't seen Ansley in at least a year, if not more. Yesterday, she was in Knoxville just for two hours but she made a detour to come see me. Too bad I wasn't home. Her gift and thoughtfulness totally made my day.
