Isn't pasta salad kind of a strange thing? Who decided cold pasta could be a picnic staple? I'm generally not a huge fan of it. If I want pasta, I want it served hot, with a spicy marinara sauce, or maybe some garlic bread and olive oil. But I don't … [Continue reading]

I'll be honest here, I hadn't really given much thought to life after the wedding. I mean I knew it was coming, but I planned absolutely nothing after May 31st. Usually I have a pretty packed schedule, a neat "to-do" list, and 5 errands  I need to … [Continue reading]
