I write this with an aching back (the result of a frenzy of cleaning today), with presents still to be wrapped, the Christmas menu not yet finalised 100%, and with sweat on my brow. Yes, after going AWOL last year, it seems summer might just have arrived.
I will be hosting members of my husband's family tomorrow. I'm happy about that, as I get to do it on my terms. Although one thing I realised. When you're used to cooking for just two, figuring how much asparagus you need for 10 can be a bit tricky!
Wishing all of you the very best for this season. Hoping that you each find your own way to celebrate, commemorate, and to just "be." And hoping you know how important you are in my heart, and how grateful I am that you share your lives with me here.
