Back in Maryland…With Matt

Yesterday I left Kansas and came back to Maryland. I stopped and had a bacon maple donut with my sister Kim. She is always so fun. She refused to eat a donut because my mom and her had tried on this dress and mom was thinner. Kim wasn’t having it. I will probably get beat up for posting this picture but it is SO worth it!
