What’s Cookin Around Town!

Hey there everyone…hope you are enjoying your Sunday morning.  I had to put socks on (that means it is really chilly!) When I sat down to work on this post a few thoughts were rushing through my mind…the biggest one being does anyone really want to know what I think is kind of interesting on the weekends? You know what I mean?  Well I have gotten a bunch of comments and a lot of emails saying that you really do enjoy it (that made me really happy) so on the weekends The Week in Review will become a regular and so will What’s Cookin Around Town…I will also share some fabulous Etsy shops with you and who knows!  I am just so pleased you enjoy it.  The rest of the week…that’s me and my loved ones!  Now…Let’s see what’s cookin!
