Live. Love. Eat – When The Hunger Strikes!

After being away for far too long, I figured I would try and appease you with a food post. I can only hope it works. This entire period, I have been on a seafood diet. You’ve probably heard this one before but I have lived it for the past few months. I see food and I eat it and boy! Don’t you dare finish the last of anything in the house. World War III in the offing.

When a friend asked for ideas for her wedding cards (you’ve gotta love a hands-on bride), I was more than glad to help.
