I know this cold winter weather is getting to everyone.  I made a promise to myself as summer came to an end..."I'm going to embrace this winter!" instead of complain and hunker down indoors.  And I have embraced it!  At times I find myself laughing right out loud when I'm walking from the shop to my car and it's sub-zero temps and the wind is blowing and it's pitch black...

Happy New Year...and once again, there's been a huge gap in my blogging.  2013 was a year of huge transition.  We had many changes at Terry's Toffee, and all for the good.  And some of them had some challenge and difficulties involved, but again, all were good.  I think the key for me is recognizing that everything that happens in my life is an opportunity for learning, or a...

Wow - I haven't written anything on my blog in a very long time.  It seems like all of the tasks and responsibilities of running a business have caused me to more or less forget about it.  But I'm back - and I'm so grateful for so much in my life these days.  Most of all for my partner, Michael Frontier.  Next month we'll be celebrating 23 years as life partners - quite an accomplishment. ...

I am so excited to announce our coast-to-coast Terry's Toffee Tasting Tour 2012.  How's that for alliteration?  We are launching it this weekend at Murray's Cheese Shop in Manhattan down in the Village.  They've been carrying our toffee for about a year - and we decided that NYC is the best place (besides Chicago) to launch our tour.  I've...

Someone must be fooling around with "time" because the days seem to be going faster than they ever have!  We are preparing for the upcoming Holidays and I'm really excited to share with you that we have a new item to offer.  I was introduced to a new product on the market called Whey-low, made from, you got it, whey!  It's a sugar substitute that...

One of the best things about summer is I have the time to go for my long and solitary bike trips along gorgeous Lake Michigan in the morning during the week.  It's my time to "think", really to listen.  It helps clear my head and pave the way for what's next.  It's been a busy year so far and Terry's Toffee is doing so well, I'm so honored...

Last night while watching the 2nd half of Oprah's interview with James Frey I found myself completely immersed in the conversation.  Not so much with what was being said, although that felt important, but more so the energy of the interview.  It was one of the most compassionate and attentive interviews I've seen Oprah do.  Although I'm not obsessed...

A few weeks ago I was inspired by someone to send a gift of our English Toffee to Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and his fiance Kate Middleton.  I packed up two of our gorgeous hat boxes, filled with 2 lbs of our gourmet toffee and tied off with beautiful ribbons; and wrote them each a brief note hoping they enjoy our toffee.  I followed the tracking...

These weeks keep rushing by me and just about every other day I think of something I want to write about and before I know it - another week has passed.

I'm busy at the shop on Grand Avenue today, but decided to stop for a moment and write.  It clears my head and reconnects me with mySelf. ... Read More

I have to admit, it's been a little difficult over the past few weeks to post to my blog...mostly because of the state of our world and my mind.  I started taping the evening news after a long hiatus.  Every evening when I come home from Terry's Toffee I sit with my partner and watch and listen to what's happening around the world.  My reconnection...

A few weeks ago we were contacted by one our local stations here in Chicago, WCIU about filming Terry's Toffee for a segment entitled I Love My Job.  The day of filming they took in the entire operation of Terry's Toffee; including our wonderful staff as well as the story behind our company.  It's a really "sweet" segment...

The 2011 Oscar season has come to a close. It was a fun two weeks of business; sending out our Press Release and being interviewed for TV as well as doing toffee tastings around town.  There were a few moments when I kind of lost mySelf in the process, and looking back wished I had remembered to stop and breathe!  That always connects me to my Self. ...

Well, I'm a little nervous and a little excited to write my first blog post...here goes!

It's a rather synchronistic moment for my first post as we are just now entering the final days before the 83rd Annual Academy Awards; and that Terry's Toffee is celebrating our 7th year as a special "sweet" treat at this internationally... Read More
