I don’t come from a big family; in fact, I don’t have any brothers or sisters. I am okay with it… now. Obviously as a kid I wanted a companion to play with or a brother to defend me, but I coped and realized having no siblings guaranteed my privacy, something that is incredibly important to me.
I have decided for the sanity of my boyfriend to redact all of the paragraphs that once existed. Never did I believe my rants would create such drama, as I periodically have much to rant about. To ensure that the dynamic between Nick and his family does not change I have decided to delete much of my text.
I knew I had to take my approach to cooking to another level… nothing extravagant, but just something that would make him happy. Nick LOVES salads, so I decided to make a fun summer salad last night for him. He LOVED it, which made me happy! Take a look at this Feta & Strawberry Balsamic Summer Salad! Yummo!
