Candy!)-I’m a sucker for chocolate!! …Then there’s Thanksgiving where we tend to engorge ourselves in buttery mash potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and several fat filling pies! Then there’s dear ol’ December..so many many sweets. Heart warming foods. Really just anything comforting we can get our hands on…And lastly, New Year’s where we drink too much and try to last through the next few chilling months until Spring comes.

Then maybe…just maybe…
I can stop feeling like a bear in hibernation.
