Hello everyone. I'm here in Colorado visiting family. I leave tomorrow. It has been a whirlwind of activity around here. My brother showed up on the same day I flew in. He had two of his kids in tow. He drove up from Alabama to surprise my dad for Father's Day. We also celebrated my… Continue reading Easy Caprese Salad
Hello everyone. How has everyone been?? It's been awhile, hasn't it? I've been plenty busy around here. Christmas came and went. Everyone in our house came down with the flu. I caught it twice. Yuk!
