Ahoy! Here's the state of my back yard at this very moment:
Everything is a little topsy turvy right now with a pond for a yard, a wet basement, and two days of school canceled due to flooding. (Makes the mini flood of last summer seem like a walk in the park.)
Here's the good news: today is my one year blogging anniversary! I owe it all to my college roomie, Erica (the original Remembery Capsule recipient), who gently pressed me (many times) to start this blog. It was to be a marketing tool for my jewelry business, which I suppose it is, in a roundabout way. What I never could have imagined was the connections I would make, the knowledge I would glean, and the doors of opportunity that would open. So glad I finally listened to her good advice and started this...I don't know, the word blog just doesn't seem to do it justice.
Another good note: these bread sticks (recipe from Petit Appetit; Eat, Drink, and Be Merry) are the perfect companion for a jar of Nutella. Oh boy. They're made from whole wheat, so that balances out the chocolate, right?
