Hi! It’s me. I haven’t written on here in forever and ever and ever. I can regale you with excuse after excuse but really I just needed a blogging break. A nice big, long hiatus was just what the WordPress doctor ordered. So what’s new? I just finished grad school, CK and I finally bought […]

I embarrassingly admitted to the fact that I’d never been to the Penzeys Spices store in Arlington the other day and several of my fellow bloggers demanded that I make a command appearance as soon as possible. What’s a girl to do? Well obviously I obeyed and made it a priority to stop by that […]
