Most Transformative Experience (for Mommy):
Training to become a Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor
It wasn’t so much the pulling up of the carpets (which we did with the help of my In-Laws). But the installation of the new wood floors on the second level (with the help of my parents)- was quite rattling.
Most in-touch with my feelings:
That time when I talked about how awesome my husband is, and how much I love him. Luckily, I’m finding more reasons I love him all the time. (Try not to let it go to your head, Dear.)
Most Awesome Culinary Experiment:
That time Emily3 and I made tomato sauce from about 3 million pounds of fresh tomato.
Henry, who started walking on Mother’s Day. Which made him a friend not just a brother in Jack’s eyes.
Most(ly) Vegetarian Cooking:
Our diets shifted last fall when we decided to go veggie (technically pescatarian). But it took us a while to start experimenting with some classic meat-based dishes.
The shittiest disease I’ve ever had:
And the winner is…. Lyme. (No surprise there.)
Roughest Toughest Hottest Hike:
Ever. The Bright Angel Trail down to Phantom Ranch in the Grand Canyon. Thank God for the donkey who carried my pack out!
Most Adorable Santas:
Oh, 2011, you were so good to us. I cannot wait to see what kind of crazy shenanigans we get into!
