This has been a busy month of trips for me! But I have had so much fun having so many awesome guest posters on my blog. Do we have any hockey fans in the house? I am headed to Denver to see the Blackhawks vs Avalanche game. It will be so fun to go to especially since the Blackhawks are undefeated! Then I will be heading in a week on my husbands company retreat in San Diego, and then we are celebrating our anniversary the week after! Phew March is making me tired!
I am excited to have Ruthie today visiting my blog. We met at a blog conference and she is really the sweetest person I have met! I absolutely adore her blog, and I especially love her cooking tutorials. Her recipes always look delicious and I can’t wait to try out these cookies!
