Strawberry Salsa-ish Chicken

I’m just going to write about food a lot.  Let’s face it, I think about food a lot, so that makes sense. Today’s food excitement was a carry-over from yesterday.  I mentioned a recipe that I love a week or so ago, Scott not so subtly hinted that I should make that sometime soon, and…

Unbridezilla

I’m among the world’s least likely to have a camera with me at any given moment.  My phone has a camera, but I forget that.  So maybe I should say that I’m among the world’s least likely to take pictures.

One of my favorite people in the world is getting married this Saturday, and I have the honor of being her Maid of Honor.  Redundent, I know, but it’s important to emphasize that I feel extremely privileged to stand next to this lady…
