This morning I'm headed to BlogHer for the third consecutive year, and I've been lucky enough to catch a ride on the "Hershey Train," which despite sounding like a naughty euphemism, is quite literally a Hershey-sponsored Amtrak ticket from the DC area to New York City. We've dubbed it the S'mores Road Trip to BlogHer, and some of my very favorite women will be on it too.
S'mores bring back some wonderful memories for me. I didn't grow up going camping, but I did have S'mores at youth-group retreats and years of sleepovers with my best firends. As an adult, my outdoorsy Boy Scout of a husband turned me on to the joys of having real, honest to God, campfire-made S'mores. We've had them backpacking as a young couple in the Grand Canyon and car camping as a family of five in our nearby state park.
To my kids, S'mores are a family treat enjoyed best under the stars. My husband and I look up, star-gaze, and delight in the family we've made together. For those of you who love S'mores and will also be attending BlogHer, you can check out Hershey's S'mores "Snacktivity" Suite in room 4233 at the Hilton for some chocolaty swag.
As part of the S'mores Road Trip to BlogHer I received a round trip ticket on Amtrak to the convention, as well as some Hershey-branded items. Any views expressed in this post are obviously my own.
