This past weekend P- and I celebrated 5 years of love by jumping in our car and heading to the ocean.

Snickers Brownies // Warm Vanilla Sugar

It was a true “getaway” weekend chalk full of mountain hiking, rocky beach walks along the Atlantic, watching local lobster fisherman, and sleeping in.

All the good stuff.

We chose Sullivan, Maine (close to Bar Harbour), as our vacation spot. It’s pretty much the closest place for us to get to the ocean, and with a bunch of suggestions we thought we’d give it a try. Plus, I had never been to Maine before!

And to top it off, this past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving, so we spent the day eating a bunch of our favorite snacks and spending a ton of time together. Because when I think of the things I’m thankful for, it’s food and loved ones….so we ended up celebrating perfectly.

We’re home now, back to our separate cities (only 6.5 months left!!) and even though we’re apart, we still have a plethora of memories to look back on. If you haven’t taken a getaway weekend with your loved one recently (even if it’s in your own house away from others) I highly suggest you do it. It’s fun to just let all your commitments go and say “eff it” once and a while.

It’s coming up to the weekend so I thought I’d leave you with something chocolatey and delicious. The pictures show it, but these brownies are super fudgy and jam packed with freaking Snickers bars. I fell in love at first bite.

  7. Hello Lover, indeed! I freaking love Snickers bars in any form (ice cream, especially) but stuffed inside a fudgy brownie would probably be the topper for me. Glad you had a great weekend away- it’s so nice to just get away from everything for a while, isn’t it?
