    That looks like Sausalito in the background. Moonlight Kayak groups trips = fave thing. Plus different kitchen background. And Dexter isn’t hanging off a screen. In fact, he looks like he’s been to spa. Calm like. Like he lives near the sea. Hmmm, I wonder if someone’s relocated without telling us. 😉

    A little late to this post but everything about it makes me happy–especially the Haribo candies. Upon seeing it I insisted my fiance and I go around town looking for some (they’re a little scarce in Toronto). And then we came home with 12 bags of candies (8 of the Gold Bears.) I know I’m addicted and I have you to thank!
