how does she know.....

....you love her?
How does she know she's yours?
How does she know that you love her?
How do you show her you love her?

How does she know that you really
really truly love her?

 




....That's how you know he's your love.

(more to come!)

three days late...but worth the wait

After trying to coax my niece out of her warm momma's belly for the past week, I got to sing happy birthday to Jamie for real today. :)






There are 30 minutes left today, so I'll say it again: 
Happy birthday, pretty girl. I love you already. :)

Life in the Yay Area: Napa Valley


In March my brother graduated from The Culinary Institute of America. He spent nine months studying at their Napa campus, also known as Greystone. It was pretty exciting to see him graduate for the second time, with this undergrad ceremony being just a few months earlier. Having been to Napa Valley only one time before, I was excited to see my family again and to revisit some beautiful architecture and OF COURSE, eat some really yummy food. It was a unique experience, especially since there was a three course reception lunch following the commencement prepared at Greystone by CIA.

I went crazy when it came to the dessert table. :) Because I have such a sweet tooth, but of course the sweetest thing was being with my lil bro. He's all grown up now!




My dad. :) 






Look at that smile. It doesn't come out often.







I got a tour of the kitchen and baking areas where they did all their work.

soft and lovely


I'm back from a week in San Diego and it was lovely.
A sneak peak of a family that I love dearly. :)
