I finally made pancakes! THREE TIMES!!! This is huge news! Seriously, HUGE! I started trying to make pancakes around 1996 when my husband presented his breakfast making skills and I was all: I can do this! I can make pancakes too! As it turned out, I couldn’t. And this baffled my husband, and quite honestly […]

On October 3rd we celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. Woah, 18 years! It seems like it was only yesterday that we were on our honeymoon in Door County and I was standing on a street corner in Fish Creek, looking at my husband out of the corner of my eye and realizing that he was […]
