A Look Back at 2012

No food post today. Just a small reflection 2012 and thoughts on opening the door to 2013. 2012 was a year of change...for both the better and the worse.

Graduating from college was both exhilar[...]

Another month has gone by already! The days are shortening, the evening are cooling, and the produce choices are shifting. I am, surprisingly, becoming more and more excited about fall as I get older.
