Here is some of the delicious chocolate we tasted and discussed during taping. Thank you to podcast hosts Jon and Trish and Team for having me!

For more on my lawyer days, you can read my memoirs which I’m publishing on another blog generally weekly, Diary of My Disastrous Law Career: From Harvard to Heaven Help Me.

Thank you — onward and upward!

New Additional Blog – Diary of My Disastrous Law Career

20190506_162457

Hello there!

I’ve started a new blog, a memoir of my days as a lawyer, called Diary of My Disastrous Law Career: From Harvard to Heaven Help Me, and the first post is up!

Chocolate forever, Harvard always, but lawyer no more — I left that career almost 20 years ago, and the blog tells you why. Read at your own risk. Plus: fun vintage photos.

Onward and upward!

Your friend in chocolate,

Valerie
