Hey, remember that time I disappeared for the week? It's been pure craziness around here. We went to Milwaukee and Kenosha for a wedding and to see friends. I went to Orlando for an incredible conference. It was AMAZING. I hope to share some of what I learned here, but who knows if I will ever be able to put words to the experience that does it justice. 

Needless to say, i have not been in the kitchen much. We've been trucking through 2 weeks of CSA shares trying to get everything gobbled up in time for tomorrow. Some has been delicious ... some not so much (I don't think we like radishes.) I have much to share. 

Thanks for being patient! 

In the meantime, here's what I've been up to ... 

A few more things: 

1. Please note that we have CORN growing in our backyard. That certainly was a surprise. Now we have to figure out how to hand pollenate it. 

2. I want to say hi to some of my readers I met while in Wisconsin! It is such a small world ... 

  • Hi Debbie!! Thank you for being such a faithful reader to my little corner of the internet. It was literally SO GREAT to meet you. Thank you for your prayers, and your support, and your comments. You are the best. 
  • Hi Elise and Kelsey! You two are adorable. Simply precious. Also, loved your toast!
  • FARYN! How is it even possible that we "met" at Anthropologie without even knowing who we were talking to? God is so funny sometimes. A few thoughts, you were one of the nicest cashiers ever. Keep that up. Also, how on earth can you stand to be around such prettiness all day? I would maybe implode from " I WANT EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME I CAN DIY THAT!" syndrome. 

3. My house is a wreck. A WRECK. Do you want to come clean it? I can't even see my bedroom floor. Gross. 

4. My husband started a blog. I'm certain it will be wonderful. 

5. Love to all.

I was following your tweets from that conference, all the while not realize you were in Orlando... I was there too! I was there on business, but I can't believe we were in the same place at once! Wish we'd had the chance to say hello, and can't wait to hear more about your CSA adventures. (Also, I'm relieved someone else's house is a mess. I'm having a hard time getting back on track after a week spent out of town.)

How fun! Thanks Kara, it was so nice to meet you too!

Kara! It was a delight to meet you. I will now be following your blog like a hawk...well maybe that's not a good analogy...but all the same. Working at Anthropologie actually makes me pickier about my purchases actually. You realize that not everything in the store is pretty. We get some weird shipments in sometimes. And I remind myself easily that I am working there for a paycheck for saving and not for spending. I love customer service! So much so! :) Hope all is well with you!

Ditto on radishes. I've tried. I've really, really tried. Can't wait to hear/read about the conference!
