All the Things I Thought I Knew + Confessions of a Bad Wedding Guest

I’m dedicating next week’s post to breaking down all of my former bad wedding guest habits which will be aptly titled, “Confessions of a Bad Wedding Guest” or maybe I should call it, “I f*&ked this up, so you don’t have to!” (maybe I’ll save the latter for my memoir.

A 10-Yr Reunion, Julia Child, and a Roasted Salmon Filet Walks into a Bar…

Here we are. Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. I’ve officially experienced 29 Thanksgiving’s in my lifetime. I guess I don’t technically remember much of the first 10.
