Love Bites.

It’s official.

I have a job.

How do I know this?

I have shin splints after a week and a half of work.

Yes, shin splints.

This occurs when I am on my feet 24/7/365…on occasion.

No, I’m not complaining.

I actually LOVE my new job and I just take this as a sign.

I sign that I’m a bad-ass at my job…haha!

There is this thing on Friday.

You know, that day where you are supposed to send flowers to your significant other, a box of chocolates to your b.f.f., and a cookie bouquet to your mom.

Duh…Valentines Day.

As you may have heard…I am sans boy frannnnnnd currently, unless you want to give me Juan Pablo’s number…you can find me on the couch, feet up, in my p.j.’s watching a series of sappy love story movies.

Yep, this is my life.

You know you want to be on my level.

Whatever you do…involve chocolate in the mix.

Specifically, this bread.
