It's getting close to the end. While I've enjoyed this challenge, I won't be doing this again in the new year. I'm thinking of taking on another personal challenge though. I haven't had time to reflect on what my goals were for 2017 and what I feel I've accomplished. I'm hoping to reflect more on… Continue reading Week 51 of 2017

Can't wait for next year.  Had to come back and prep for these upcoming events for this month!  Took me 2 hours to strain and bottle all of these infusions! So many bottles of oil.

Week 30 of 2017

Got the kids to make some cookies. Which has sparked a mini fire in me to actually get this cookbook made.  They didn't come out like I wanted, but the kids did enjoy them!
