Hope that everyone had a great morning! I’m a little late in posting today, but late is better than not at all =). My day is a busy one – volunteering this morning, cleaning this afternoon, work, cooking, picking up my sister, and then a potluck later tonight probably followed by relaxing with Nathan! (I am very blessed). On a less relevant note – did anyone watch Top Chef last night??? Congratulations to Richard!!! (I watched it at like midnight and woke up Nathan with my excitement after they announced it – dorky… probably). Have a great Thursday!
