When you think of waffles, I bet you don’t think of dessert. Maybe a waffle cone, perhaps? When I first moved to England, I was informed that waffles are in fact, not breakfast food, but dessert food. Say what now? But I have to be honest, this is a concept I can get behind. I’ve […]

Y’all, I’m stress eating like whoa. It’s been a rough few days without water or power, but we have it better than most. A tree fell, but missed EVERYTHING. We thought we were prepared with a generator and gas. But now we’re on day 4, and everywhere is out of gas, including our generator. At […]
