This Labor Day weekend, we had a chance to catch up with our first ever South 'n France Bon Bon Mom of the Year. This super-sweet Mom was in town to visit her two lovely daughters who live in Wilmington. When Debbie came by the bon bon factory to pick up the second installment of her year-long supply of bon bons (one of the many spoils she won for being such a fabulous Mom), we got a chance to learn a little more about her. For example, if she had to take a road trip, she'd prefer riding with Pascal because she likes Queen and David Bowie better than my road trip song selections which would be more along the lines of Tony Bennett and Rosemary Clooney. Here are some other fun facts we learned about our Bon Bon Mom:
