Homemade Pasta

January and February have been such busy months. We've almost been out of town more than we've been in town, which is really rare for us. Luckily they've all mostly been fun trips, but regardless, they still get you out of routine, change your pace of life, and overall make things feel a bit unsettled. Since January 1st, Archie and I together have been gone for four trips, and Archie...

Hearty Italian Meat Sauce

I'm mostly posting this recipe because my mother's been begging for it...And I'm a slacker....And I have good intentions... I really do!

I know that the recap isn't the most interesting for everyone, but I thought even if it helps someone who's been to Italy relive the memories for a moment it might be worth it. And I definitely did it also as a way for me to have a journal...

Italy – Day 1 & 2

Buona Sera, I know it's been a while. We are officially back from Italy, although my body still feels like it might be there. Jet lag, combined with 25 straight hours of travel on the way home (after only 5 hours sleep the night before), and going straight back to work the next day does not a happy body make! Sorry it's taken me a while to get any updates...

A Dream Come True

5 years ago, my husband bought me this as a stocking stuffer, promising me that one day he wanted to take me. (via)   After 5 years, lots of waiting, a lot of good times, a whole lot of bad times, a cross-country move, new jobs, getting out of debt, and plenty of Italian meals -   We Are Headed To Italy!! (via)   I can't wait to tell you...
