Today is our 1st Anniversary! We can’t believe how fast the year has gone and how last year at this time we wrw going through the wonderful wedding chaos then heading to Cabo for almost two weeks!

To celebrate we had some of the top layer of our wedding cake:

We couldn’t remember what kind we had picked for top layer and were pleasantly surprised that it was carrot cake with almond ganache.

A goofy picture of us cutting the cake at my grandparents house- we are dressed a little different than last year!

Spiralizing Success!

For dinner last night I broke out the spiralizer. My parents, Brady and I, my grandma, papa, my great aunt and my cousin Erin ate together in NY. We had a full table of great fresh food – watermelon, corn, zuc. salad, grilled chicken and rice. It hit the spot.

I tried a new thrown together recipe for this dish. It turned out great! I can’t wait to make it again.

It tasted better than it looks. 🙂
