I know two months is basically no time at all to the average person… and I agree. But if I count the amount of things I’ve learned in the past two months of marriage… that is without a doubt, worth something.
Choose the person who makes you a better person, always points you to the things that really matter, and you enjoy spending time with. Choose the person you respect, you can have fun with, and you aren’t scared to have those deep conversations with.
I am endlessly grateful for being the one Eric chose to marry.
Here’s to many more months of learning, growing, and doing life together.

It’s back to school time and I’m still clinging on to those last tastes, smells, and memories of the summer. Did I mention how unbelievably easy it is to make? So easy and a quick snack for back to school. I love all things almond, dark chocolate, and sea salt. 🙂
Break chocolate bars into small pieces and melt for one minute in a microwavable bowl.
Stir with a spatula until all chocolate is melted together. In a medium sized mixing bowl, pour chocolate, almonds and 2 tbsp sea salt. Mix. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Pour mixture into wax paper. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of sea salt on top of mixture. Place in freezer for 1 hour. Remove from freezer and break into smaller pieces as desired.
