Last week, Inspector Climate and I got to eat some home grown tomatoes from our planter box!
I just sliced them up with some fresh basil, goat cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!
I was also guest blogging all over the place last week.
Check out this post over at the Many Colours of Happiness.
I also wrote a post about my hopes for 2012 over at my friend Ruby's blog, There is more than one kind of me. In that guest post, I mentioned some hardships about our upcoming wedding that when read a second time I realised probably made me sound like a selfish bitch. What? You're not in my mind and can't see what I really meant? Writing is so hard.
For me the kind of "point" of the wedding itself is two fold. 1. To celebrate the love between two families who are now joined together. 2. An experience for the bride and groom that is very much one of a kind. I'm totally willing to compromise on all "stuff" aspects of the wedding (point taken, a flash mob dance doesn't really fit into a wedding of less than 30 people. And perhaps my dream of having Ellen officiate is just that...a dream) but the experience part of the wedding is harder for me to give up.
I wanted the experience of making my wedding dress with my mom. A simple dress. No ruffles, no beads. And she, understandably I suppose, did not want to have anything to do with it. It's been a hard thing for me to let go of. I wanted the experience of eating 100% gluten free vegetarian food at my wedding, a place where I could eat ANYTHING that was put in front of me - that's a real rarity. And I've had to compromise on that too. There will now be meat (!) at my wedding.
So anyway, go over and check out what else I have in mind for 2012.
