Today is June 1st, which means nothing at all except that time is moving so very quickly that it’s gonna be Christmas in like a half a minute.

It’s depressing.

In other less depressing news, there are a few big things happening this week. Number uno: it’s doughnut week or something like that (I haven’t Googled it). Number dos: it’s Negroni week. I love both and if someone can figure out how I can have a doughnut and a Negroni and how they’d taste good together, LEMME KNO.

It’s melts into the candy, infusing it with a strong strawberry flavor. YUM.
