I take photos here and there of what I'm doing, but more often than not, with a 55-60 hour work week, I don't have much time to write about it. So, for inquiring minds (I know you're dying to know what we eat) here are a few photos from 2012.
Homemade cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. Beautiful color!

I would love to make blogging promises I can't keep, so for now I'll just say I will TRY to post more often than twice a month. See you soon :)
