long time, no blog

Look at these lovely young women... Yes, they are here in Utah with me and are the main reason I haven't blogged in weeks.

Today is Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day.  A day I didn't know existed until last autumn: the first October I lived with the burden of having lost a child.

recipe... spicy chicken/italian soup

Hello friends!  It's that time of year again; the months of yummy casseroles and warm soups.  It is my favorite time of the year, so I thought I'd share a favorite meal in our home.  While I usually do all of the cooking during the weekdays, this is one Andrew and I tackle together!  I'm in charge of the chicken while Andrew is soup-master!
