Hello, Violet Kay

Shortly after my last post Keri showed up with Violet. We spent the entire day together, including a big ol’ family taco dinner at my Aunt’s new house.

You’re going to have to drag me kicking and screaming away from this little one on Monday… I AM IN LOVE!!

Violet and Violet:

Taco Night! See Rebecca’s recipe below for her Mama’s Spanish rice (fantastic!):

I can’t wait to make this rice at our next dinner party in Portland. Another case of bacon making everything better… Thanks for hosting, ladies!
