Thank you to all of you that have sent me kind words and thoughts about Lucy – I really appreciate it.

      Why This Photo:
      I am still stunned by the win over Stanford last night! I invited my parents over for dinner so my dad and I could watch the game (even my mom ended up watching and she doesn’t care for football). Figured since I had additional adults to cook for, I would try some new recipes. So here we have my new paddle chalk board hanging in our kitchen –thought it would be fun to put the dinner menu on it for that evening, figuring that would likely be our highlight. Boy was I wrong!!!

      Challenges/Lessons Learned:
      Writing with chalk on a chalkboard … uh, have you done that lately? Not so easy! Honestly to get this shot to line up perfectly, I should have moved the kitchen table out of the way and actually set it up. I didn’t have the time though (with screaming kids, dinner cooking, and wine that needed refilling), so we get to take a look at this at a little bit of an angle. I kind of like it though – gives it character!
