Aaand I’m back! It’s been quite a while since my last blog entry – a whole season in fact. Thank you to my friends and supporters for your understanding. It has been a crazy few months and I needed the break both physically and emotionally. In a nutshell, our family moved. We packed up our […]

A Matter of Perspective

Signed, sealed and delivered…it’s official…and just like that, we are moving. We are now the proud owners of a lovely piece of property on just the other side of town.

The smells emanating from my kitchen vary from pungent garlic to sweet strawberries. It’s preserving time at our house in between work schedules, soccer games and well…life.
