happy birthday big bro!

Today is my brother’s birthday. When we were growing up, I could always count on him to play with me even though I was five years his junior. Each summer, for two weeks, our family would trek down to Florida for a beach vacation. The only two kids within miles, we created a variety of […]

what I read, what I thought

A few weeks ago, I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and wrote a little review on the book which was recommended to me by a friend.

kale salad with homemade dressing

I am obsessed with this kale salad. This week alone David and I have devoured tons of kale.  This salad is so good that as we wait for the main dish to prepare we snack on the bowl of salad, stealing a leaf here and there until dinnertime.  At the kitchen table, we pile the […]
