We are no longer buying store bought bread. I am baking on average four to five loaves a week and it is sooooo worth it. Except of course when I walk into the kitchen and discover one of my loaves has completely deflated. Oh my goodness! What did I do [...]
It’s my 13th anniversary today. I actually celebrated all day yesterday by birthing as many kidney stones as I have children. It was lovely. Just to share the joy here is a look at the communication via texts that my husband and I shared yesterday. He was amazing. I honestly [...]
Evey after her first practice on two wheels. She really wants to be a big girl. She wants to quit at the same time too. We have all been there. Don’t you just feel so sad for her? Don’t. She weighs a ton and I am tired of pulling her [...]
We NEVER buy caffeine. Let’s just say it’s been a loooong week.
