Today, on the very first day of October, I turned off my air conditioner and opened my windows. There’s a slight chill in the air and I’m breathing it all in deep.
It’s really starting to feel like fall here. I spotted several yellow spots on varying trees. I can probably wear [...]
Here begins the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats for 2012! Remember when I participated last year? Well it’s time again! Hard to believe it’s really twelve weeks until Christmas!
I decided to try something new this year. Last year most of my entries for the blog hop were gluten free (the [...]

But this year, in particular, is even more special.
Today marks one year since [...]
