    A Life Update

    I don’t even know where to begin this post other than with a giant thank you to everyone that read, commented on, emailed, or otherwise supported me after my last post (including those of you who commented on my Facebook page). I wrote that post in about 20 minutes when all those feelings kind of came to a head and I couldn’t hold them in anymore. I almost didn’t publish it, but Chris read it and insisted I did. So thank you to all of you for understanding what I’m going through and all of your advice. I’m hoping to write…

    This Week’s Menu: 3.29 – 4.4

    This Week’s Menu: 3.29 – 4.4

    So, it’s March 30th…and today it snowed.  This is seriously the never-ending winter.  I’m hoping that it’ll warm up enough soon so that we can spend some time outside, and thankfully it does look like it’ll warm up this week. Anyway, I’ve been meaning to link up with Jessica with our meal planning for weeks.  I grocery shop on Friday nights, so our menu always starts with Saturday.  Here’s what we’ve had/will have this week: Saturday: Pasta with Bacon and Leeks – from Food Network magazine’s March issue.  It was good, but I think I’m going to try a few…
