Thank You, Chester.

Whether it was losing a loved one, ending a relationship, or being bullied, music has always been my greatest escape. If you were to ask me who my favorite bands are, Linkin Park would be at the top of that list. Not only did I love to crank up the stereo when I was having a bad day, I also loved to sing my heart out and recite every line of nearly every song from this band. I’m extremely saddened by the news of Chester Bennington’s passing but am also thankful that in his short time here on earth, he was able to touch as many lives as he did with his music.

Oh My Gnocchi!

It gets old after a while! That’s when sweet potato gnocchi came to my mind. Yes, please! Continue reading “Oh My Gnocchi!”

April Showers

One thing that seems to have slipped my mind about Spring is all of the rainy weather we get.  Usually I’m prepared and tend to keep an umbrella handy just in case, until now that is. You see…I tend to lose things, and this time I lost my umbrella and have no earthly idea where it is, but honestly it’s about time I started shopping for new one.  Continue reading “April Showers”
