’tis the season of the CANDY CANE!

i just love the little cane sticks of JOY! they make me all nostalgic

and make me think of sipping hot cocoa by the fire in my feetie pajamas with a peppermint stick right in the mug, trying not to eat the entire thing in 3 bites.

that reminds me…

are you a candy cane licker? or do you eat it like candy right away?

that sounded wrong.. get our head outta the gutter.

my husband and i were eating some candy canes the other day and i finished mine in about 30 seconds because bite.. bite.. crunch.. crunch.. dig it out of my back teeth, gone!

and he’s over there, jaw dropped, with is pointed-like-a-sharp-weapon candy cane from licking it.

i don’t mess around with my sweets!

i truly try to enjoy and savor the candy cane, but i ain’t got time for that!

feel me?!
