I'm a girl.
I get emo.
No getting around that issue.
The last six months have been full of so much change, so much loss, so many decisions, honestly, just so very much of everything.
Sunday I woke up with a cold, and just broke.
After church I shut myself in our room and slept the entire day away, which is something I never ever, ever do. It was so needed. I recommend indulging in a little breakdown day here and there.
My emo feelings are usually accompanied by chocolate and peanut butter. Lots of feelings. Lots of eating of said feelings. Making things in the kitchen is how I deal. Oh how I wish that I was one of those starve through your feelings people. Sign me up for that coping mechanism.
Two things were on the top of my Eat My Feelings list. Two things that I wanted to make.
First thing? Buckeye Bark. Heather put a pic of her eating said feelings via Buckeye bark a few weeks ago. Yes please.
Second thing? Buckeye Truffles.
The thing is, my feelings needed to be eaten quickly. Truffles seemed too labor intensive.
A decision needed to be made. A new recipe needed to be created. One that would be like if Buckeye Bark and Buckeye Truffles had a baby, and that baby was an amazing therapist.
Meet that delicious baby.
I named it Emotional Breakdown Bark.
