So I’m officially halfway through with my vacation and I have accomplished zero. I feel so bad. I haven’t even accomplished sitting on the couch and relaxing watching a movie. What is wrong with me?

THAT GOOD!!! CANDIED BACON, chocolate chips, caramel, sea salt?!?!? Now who can deny that’s not a heaven you want to be in? Continue reading
