Over the last week and a half since leaving Boston, there’s been one thing that every place we’ve stayed at has had in common: an invitation to roast marshmallows.

Triple Dark Chocolate Waffle Cookies

Yesterday I read an article about a woman who decided to leave a nearly six figure job in Manhattan to move to a small Caribbean island and scoop ice cream.
