  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

    I take photos. Lots of photos.

    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
