We Interrupt This Food Moment for an Important 2009 Message & Photos for My Mother in Law
Sorry to take a pause in my world of food, but I felt a 2009 post was needed. I am a little late as it is officially mid January, but here is it nonetheless.
2009 is going to be a great year. I can feel it. You see it is the year of the 30, at least that's what I'm calling it. That's right folks. I am turning 30, in August anyway. I am not sad or traumatized by this. It's life. 30 feels like a good age. 30 feels like adulthood. 30 feels like I am still younger than my husband (my halo is shining brightly).
2009 will also be the year of visiting friends and family whether in person, on the phone, in a hand written letter or all of the above. It means holding close to what is important- those we love.
2009 begins a year of saving. Saving money that is- cooking at home, taking lunches, more time at home and preparing more for our "future". Future could have multiple meanings if you read between the lines. Also something excited to try for in 2009. See this post for more info.
2009 marks a the year of a new trick. :) I am teaching myself to sew. My darling mother and father in law gave me a wonderful new toy for Christmas. A sewing machine! I am already finished with my first quilt top and exited to see what else I can do with the new Brother. My mom in law asked I post pictures of the quilt so here you go.
Finally 2009 marks a time with food. I plan to try new recipes (and cooking more at home will help with that) and will be sharing them with you here. The good, the bad and the ugly.
Here's to 2009. I wish you and yours all of God's blessings, good health, warm memories, and tasty treats!
