Summer is all about adventures. My five year old niece told me a few weeks ago, “It’s summer, Aunt Stefanie.

Grilled Portabello and Heirloom Tomato Caprese Stacks

I just got back from a week long vacation in Wisconsin Dells with all of Mike’s family. Each year I look forward to this trip. I feel like some people might look at going to the same place and doing the same things each year as boring. Well, I have news for you. It isn’t!

This year I was happy to make memories with Andy. Well, memories he won’t remember quite yet. But I will remember them. I will remember how excited he was to be around all his cousins and how happy he was that there was a bouncy seat in the water. [Read more…]
