the year to come

I love the new year. Starting fresh, making resolutions, reflecting on the last twelve months, yet savoring the present. 2012 was a joy, and I'm starting to (finally) feel like I'm (slowly) growing into a real adult. (No, I don't have that 401k yet, but I'll get there soon.) Ready for a little best of?
On the top of my "adult" list is our engagement, which still feels so real and new even though the big day is only a few months away. 

I made these zucchini chips and I'm astonished at how much the internet still likes them. Thanks, internet.

This summer the kitchen became my office as I prepared my little e-cookbook. Huge thank yous to everyone out there who bought one, you are awesome

We moved into a new apartment, the last of a (long) list of rentals, and we love it. 

I started a new job at the elementary school in town, and I admit, I've never been happier to go to work in the morning. 

2013 is going to be action packed, my dear readers. We have two weddings to plan, a honeymoon to go on, a house to renovate and move into, new babies in the family, recipes to create and more Italian adventures ahead. So thankful you've been here this past year, and can't wait to share what's in store this year with you!
