this girl’s a silhouette, can't you see?

This girl is the wild smile, the icy stare She’s the crackle of the static, she’s the curses, she’s the prayers... This girl is the shaking hand, the rattling cup With a button and a note saying things are looking up. -------- Larabelle. 26. Australian. Music. Art. Cosplay. Steampunk. Sci-fi. Anxiety.

    So tasty and chocolatey and what a way to finish an incredible night!

It was such a beautiful night with a beautiful man, and beautiful food! It was all SO. DAMN. FANTASTIC.

This is the kind of foods that Samwise spends 60 hours a week making, and it was so nice to experience it with him, and have time to get out of the house together and just relax, and listen to him talk about the food and tell me about each thing as it comes out, and see his passion for cheffing, and hearing stories about the kitchen and the fun they have. And just having some solid Sammy-time. I am content in all ways tonight :)
