Since I haven't written since July (yes, it's been that long!) I thought I'd update you on what's been going on in my kitchen (and life) for the past several months. Jeff and I have made a few major decisions in regards to our life...
- The biggest decision is that after 20 years of Active Duty, Jeff is retiring from the Army in September 2012. Due to built up vacation time, he'll stop working at the end of May. That's right around the corner!

- For years and years, we've talked about where we would retire...I'm from Maine, he's from Iowa, and we've lived everywhere in between. So we've decided to stay here in Kansas. This was a hard decision for me to make. I never thought I'd live in Kansas longer than the Army said. The first few years we were here, I couldn't wait to move. And now, Kansas has really grown on me. I actually like it!
- I have a new kitchen to cook in and I love my new kitchen! Since we've decided to stay in Kansas, we bought a new house and sold our old house! Our new house is more us. It's bigger, it's open, it's comfortable, it's home. There are kids for Jacob to play with in our neighborhood, we have friendly neighbors and we finally have space for a garden! We're here to stay for a while.
So I look forward to being back in the blogging world. I look forward to writing, cooking and sharing what goes on in my kitchen! And I hope you'll join me for this continued adventure!
