I am not a food blogger. I in no way attempt to claim it. I have an inability to identify substitutes or be creative about cooking. I love baking because you need to be precise. Follow the recipe.

We used to live in the Seattle area, so we really only worried about the sun a few months out of the year. Now that we are in the Carolinas, I can feel the sun burning my pale skin even on my commute. Ouch.
I originally wrote this post to share with friends and family on Facebook. I decided to share this early on because it is something that forever impacted me and how I view the world. In January we learned that we were pregnant with Baby #2. Other than a Zika scare with C, we had no … Continue reading You learn to live with the unimaginable
