Happy Hour Appetizers…

…When There is No Time Last Friday, Gary and I had our neighbor and dear friend Natalie over for Happy Hour. It had been months since we had some quality time with just her. But On Friday, the planets aligned and we had nothing on our schedule, and she was kid and boyfriend free. Now don’t get any ideas her kids are amazing, and we love them like our own, and we like her boyfriend too, but we were craving some “Nat time.”  So the three of us got comfy in our three season room (aka Church of the Screened in Porch)…

Milestone and Marriage

Milestone Yesterday was a big day for me.  In the last 30 days, I had over 4,000 page views in the USA from 49 of 50 states.  These views came from 2500-ish unique visitors.  Not to mention an additional 153 page views from 32 countries around the world. (Yes, I imagine that some of those are spammers hoping to break into my site, but still!) This milestone is huge for me, and I have to thank my neighbor and fashion blogger Natalie.  She made a mention of my blog and subsequently re-posted two of my recipes on her blog, Designer Bags, and Dirty Diapers and…
