One year ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to do maternity pictures for my dear friend Jill. She was patiently awaiting the birth of her son, Madox. She was such a joy to work with, and being a part of her journey to motherhood was a true blessing to me. It is hard to believe that a year has already passed since we took these pictures. I remember the afternoon as if it were yesterday. There was a nice cool breeze in the air, and lots of mommy chat going on between Jill & I.
Now, as she is several months into this whole mommy thing, she's doing just perfect. Being a mom is definitely her calling!
I stand in the kitchen almost everyday thinking, "Hmm.. what to cook? I should have something prepared for when Travis gets home, but what do you cook?" Nothing that comes to mind sounds good. I can stare at the frozen meat in our freezer and nothing, blank, notta. BUT... Travis comes home, sees the same stuff in the freezer or pantry and whala, presto! dinner is served. It is so weird. I will think of some of the same stuff he comes up with, but it never sounds good in my head.
Help a sister out people. I need dinner ideas. My idea of dinner is not Travis, and even if it were who on earth can afford it?! I watch Rachel Ray, Paula Deen, and read recipes in magazines. They all make it sound so simple and like you have all that stuff in your pantry. I would love to cook like my mom or my granny. I really would. I have sweet, sweet memories from my childhood of a big family dinner each and every night. Homemade biscuits, fresh sweet tea (granted, I'm not a fan of tea... at all!), chicken & rice, beef stew, fresh mustard greens & cornbread. Explain to me why it is that I did not inherit the cooking gene in my family, please? My mom's sister, Angie, we tease her about her cooking. We tell her it has taken her 15 years to master chicken and rice and I'm following step by step in her shoes. One day, some day, granted it may be 15 years from now I'll cook that good 'ole southern food for my family. I may only conquer one dish, but I'll cook something they enjoy. Maybe if my sister ever moves back home, close enough to me, I can just have her cook then come home and put it on the table and take credit for it, LOL!! That cooking gene I was talking about... Jessica got it all.
I must go, I have a date with the freezer. We'll have a staring contest. The freezer always wins!
Happy Monday, God bless!

It's been almost three weeks now since Tucker started with runny nose & congestion. Last week we dealt with salmonella, and yesterday that was confirmed with the lab results. I took Tucker back to the pediatrician yesterday in hopes of getting something to help him sleep better due to the cough and congestion he has. Our nights have been pretty restless for the past week.
