Adam made maple syrup somewhere last week and gave me some (along with pumpkin pie, homemade whipped cream w/ Madagascar vanilla, and a fruit glaze for meat) because he is full of awesome. Last year, he left me a container of this and some homemade goodies on my porch and texted me something along the lines of, “If you were a regular female, you’d probably propose.”
Damn straight! :O The best way to get to my heart is definitely through my stomach (or, well, my tastebuds, really). I’m really gonna miss having him as my neighbor. :o I’ve been so spoiled.
