Lace Cookies

I often write about my mom being the main inspiration behind my baking endeavors. When we work together in the kitchen, she always has new tips up her sleeve. She often treats me as a novice/sous-chef. With her, every culinary experience is a great opportunity to learn even more. For this week’s dessert, I actually turned to my older sister’s…

Engagement Photos

When Joe and I announced our engagement, we received the kindest congratulatory messages. Most importantly, my newly married girlfriends gave me their personal wedding tips. One of them told me: “Enjoy this special time and take it all in. These are the precious moments in life.” Simple and true, I took this advice to heart, and decided that we should…

…and of course, I said “yes”

Here you have it, my biggest news of 2014: I can now refer to my better half, Joe, as my fiancé. You guessed right: I said yes to one of the most important questions ever asked to me. Yes! The emotions are sometimes overwhelming. Depending on the family member, sharing the news either enhanced my giggle fits or caused me…
