Jason and I began reading “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman the other night, and already I’m fully convinced that this is BY FAR the best marriage-improvement book ever.

Thanksgiving came and went, but I have been reminded over and over again that I have SO MUCH to be thankful for!!  In the midst of preparing & eating a FEAST at my sister’s house on Thanksgiving day, hanging out and playing dress-up with my nieces on Friday, driving to & from my parents’/sister’s house, [...]
