Guess who? Coming back after a loooong break. I've had this blog in the back of my mind for some time.  I had ideas on revamping it, changing things up..but life with 2 kids, a new job, and new house kept that thought at bay.

But, I'm here now and hoping to continue on and hoping to put some new spins on here.  Same family recipes, stories and such.  But want to incorporate information on some of my other passions - family, community, shopping, saving money, and friends.

And I have a great, new friend to thank for bringing me out of retirement.  She is none other than Cate from Sweetnicks. She recently invited me to a post Thanksgiving bloggers dinner sponsored by Shutterfly.  Food, dessert, laughter, and pictures...I'm there!

Looking over the new cards Shutterfly had to offer, I immediately felt the need to get home and take our family picture...but at 11pm, I figured it was better to wait till the morning.  Tons of ideas were running through my mind, do we do a formal picture, candid, funny, serious??  Decisions, decisions.  I came across some #cardworthy ideas here -

Now, the best part of coming out of retirement - a CONTEST!  Just in time for the Holiday!  Shutterfly gave me a $50 promotional code to share with you.  $50 will go a long way for Holiday cards, gifts, photobooks, etc...possibilities are endless!
