and I'm great with power tools, too!

While I don't have photos of myself using the power drill, let me tell you, I was fabulous.

Instead of talking home improvement, let's talk home making.

Thanksgiving, to be exact.

Not to toot my own horn, but this Thanksgiving was the tastiest one YET.

Everything was delicious – the turkey couldn't have been juicier; I went back for seconds...and that says a lot.

Wow. I don't think I've ever actually eaten anything made by someone who even knew what "Intermezzo" was. I had to google it. I am a heathen.

I am so coming to your house next year and will be wearing elastic waisted pants! That sounded like one amazing and delicious meal!
