Anniversaries. I don’t go overboard for the required celebrations (other than my 40th birthday, ha). Oh, John and I saw an amazing movie (Into the Wild), followed by a lovely dinner tonight, in the bar at La Belle Vie (always a winner) to celebrate our 5th annivesary. But the forced part of it, that this should be an amaaaazing night, better than all others, meh. Rather unromantic, I know. But I’m not that uber-romantic girl. I don’t love surprises. Plus, romance requires a certain amount of sentimentality, don’t you think? And I’m too practical to be terribly sentimental. The day-to-day is where the pedal meets the metal! Our weekly Date Nights are really fun to me, because they’re not forced, we just go with what sounds good. Spontaneity that I have a say in, much more my (sometimes cranky, often controlling) style, ha.

So…sorry to have been absent for more than a week! Sheesh! Not cooking terribly interesting things – the Good Calories Bad Calories book has me thinking – a lot – about grains and sugar. Hmmm…especially in light of diabetes in my family, and other health issues, just a lot to think about. A bit of an awakening, perhaps. Doesn’t change things terribly much, but while I’m all contemplative and such, I tend to withdraw. Hmmm…

Hope all is well with you!

    Why thank you, Favorite Sister Lisa!!!! Very sweet - and Happy Anniversary to you too! Wow, 27 years, definitely an accomplishment, lots of hard work being married for that long. Um, I've been married a total of 12 years with my two marriages, hahaha. I have a ways to go, for sure. Again, thanks!!! Stephanie

    Happy Anniversary, anyway!! Mason just turned 5, so I remembered that your date was close...One day, I'd really like to meet him! And see you again too....
    On the sugar thing, I started watching my sugar intake around mother's day, and it's totally changed my body...who knew that you couldn't live on *fried cheese curds forever?? Now, the real ones are another story..and so squeaky!! XOXO Cami
