Farewell 2011 and Hello 2012!

Oh, 2011!  What a year!

Our highlights and significant events included:  Rose's first birthday and Rich's first birthday as a dad.  Unfortunately, my aunt Gail passed away at the end of December 2010, so the first few days of 2011 were filled with travel and funeral arrangements.   I traveled to Philadelphia for work and enjoyed good food.  Started this blog.  Our first CSA (community-supported agriculture) with Eener's Farm experience.  Traveled to Hawai'i in July for 10 days to celebrate Rich's Mom's 81st birthday.  We spent a lot of time at the zoo and eating shave ice!  And, the biggest news of all . . . Pistachio!

Welcome, 2012!
We eagerly anticipate the arrival of baby #2 (aka Pistachio) and preparations (for the house, for Rose, for all of us) are well underway.  I recently purchased a sewing machine, so be on the lookout for potential hilarity there.  We are enrolled for another CSA this year, so more vegetable deliciousness awaits!

All in all, we are happy and fortunate for our good health, our friends and family who surround us with love, and, of course, our big fat juicy brains!
Happy New Year, everyone!
