Note:  This post is mainly for my Provo, Utah Valley friends and readers but you may all enjoy taking a look at all the good eating I did this weekend!

I miss those faces so much!!  I flew to Provo so that I could attend Cali’s dance performance.  She was in the Faculty Choreography Show. My kids love it when mom [Continue Reading...]
