I scored!

Matt's mom is in the process of having her kitchen remodeled and as a result she had to find a new home for most of her over 130 cookbooks and I was lucky enough to have the first pick. I was able to take about 40 or so of the best ones she had. I am so excited to start going through them for new recipes. One of my goals for this summer is start cooking more and trying new recipes. I'll keep you posted on the results and share the best ones! Bon appetit!

our garden

I have so much catching up to do on the blog...lots of fun pics of things we have been up to for the last few months. But I couldn't resist posting these pictures of our beautiful garden. I can say that because I play absolutely no role in its design or upkeep...that is all Matt. Doesn't he do a fabulous job?

I love these green pots and the way the poppies grow up around them.

The garden gate.

The peonies are beginning to blossom!


And grapes!

And, of course, the roses.

The inspectors.

February 19th?

But today is April 23rd...I have been ignoring you, dear blog. But truly I've been pining away for you, wishing I would allow myself to sit down and give you some attention. You have so often been on my mind and I am hoping to get back to you very soon. We have a lot of catching up to do.
