Sunday Romps

San Antonio Temple

This picture doesn't even begin to do it justice. The windows on this temple are stupendous!

What Laurel's hair looks like when it's "done"

I love her in her little slip and sometimes let her run around in it for a while...

Since last fall's Relief Society broadcast, President Uchtdorf's remarks have been in the back of my head. His comments about making life more beautiful around us struck me - probably because I'm living in the ugliest graduate housing apartment ever. Now, don't think I'm totally shallow - I get that making things beautiful primarily means strengthening the relationships with our God and our family members. But I'm tired of ugly and boring and disorganized things. A friend of mine just ramped up her interior design business, and I thought, hey, that must be interesting. So I've begun reading up on the topic. I've had a desire to expand my cooking repertoire, so I've purposely taken some risks in the kitchen. And all these things just make me feel - pretty! Not that I'm actually been doing any decorating or plating gorgeous meals - but acquiring knowledge makes me feel - pretty! Thanks to Sarah for posting this link on her page and reminding me of my goals. It's a great pick-me-up.

New Blog

Friends, I've been MIA recently because I've been focusing on a new blog. 10+ years of collecting recipes and a cooking rut inspired Luke to say, "Why don't you just start your own blog and put some favorite things on it?". It really has helped me with meal planning and getting creative in the kitchen again. Stop on by if you have the time!
