Bread Milk Eggs … As I sit on my kitchen stool, trying so hard to focus on the simple task before me (writing out a grocery list), I find that it is absolutely impossible. We have both had the longest week, clocking in more than normal hours at work, driving to see the folks […]
When it comes to cooking, I feel fairly confident. Whether it’s a steak and potatoes kind of a night, or a spicy curry dish, I know my way around a kitchen. However, I have a confession: I may have a slight phobia of large cuts of meat. So here I am (after a phone call […]
This is one of those moments that in the future, after I have conceived, carried, labored, and am finally holding our baby that I will not even remember. But right now, it has me so upset. A year ago, I had my first doctor’s appointment with a provider that was standing in while my […]

We love eating fresh strawberries in the late spring and early summer- straight from our patch in the garden, the juiciest tomatoes in August (and when you think about it have you ever eaten a half decent tomato in the dead of […]
Who doesn’t love a good pumpkin patch trip? Waking up early, caffeinating, bundling up, then it’s on the road to our favorite patch.
