I have an interesting fact to share on the blog today (with a moral to the story): before starting this blog, I had another one. A cooking blog. I started it with more enthusiasm than you can imagine. I adored cooking and sharing my creations with other people, and did so for almost a year,…… Continue reading CONFESSIONS OF A RECOVERING PERFECTIONIST
Well, we’re safely back from France and what a trip it was! Our three weeks away were jam-packed in every way imaginable.
