Guys. We survived. We got FOUR whole inches of snow last week and were subsequently “snowed in” from Friday to Monday. If you’re not from the South, let me explain how this is possible. We have seven snow plows for the entire Nashville area. I’m not kidding. Not even a little. So here’s what happens:…

ChocolateChili

What can I say? I’ve been caught. Cheating on my favorite chili recipe. We had a good time, my old chili recipe and I. And I may go back every now and again, for old time’s sake. To relive the times when I made chili with a jar of salsa and cream of mushroom soup….

FeedingPeople

A GLORIOUS thing happened this morning. Preschool started. I dropped off my super excited, adorable 4 year old to play, learn, and TALK with SOMEONE ELSE. Just for a couple hours. I will be so ready to have her bubbly little personality back this afternoon, but for now, I sit and blog while Isaac sleeps,…
