Smashed Avocado Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches


Well it's all over now, Valentine's day and my birthday. I'm glad! I'm officially one year older, and I'm not going to tell you how old I am. There was a time when I didn't use to care. Now I do, funny how that works. I hate getting old and I know we all do, nobody wants to get older but there's nothing we can do about it. My husband is a sweetheart. He got me these beautiful purple tulips for Valentine's day and I love the color so much I just had to take a picture of them and share them … [Read more...]

It's almost middle of April. This morning was a regular Monday morning, hard time waking up. On the weekends I'm out of bed at 6 am, but no, not when it's time for me to go to work.
