how i spent my saturday Featured

I spent my Saturday morning at my surrogate family's house (Carly's parent's house). A lot of chocolate was involved. Same with caramel, sugar, peanut butter, and sugar. 

It was about finding my peace in the kitchen. It wasn't about being healthy, but enjoying the company of good people and making some damn good holiday candies! 

Carly's family gets together every year for an entire day of candy making and this year I was invited to help out! Seriously- love this tradition and Carly's crazy (in a good way) family! I was the camera man slash master chocolate drizzler  I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

PS: I'll be doing a little recap on my eating disorder sometime soon (hopefully next week). I need to set some time aside where I write it all down and share my story in more detail.
