new adventure!

I've shot some really lovely family pictures over the past couple of weekends...I look forward to sharing them with you all soon! However; tonight I'm anxious because I begin training to run a half marathon tomorrow. I've done this before...but chickened out three weeks before the race. I really hope I can do it this time!! I love running; but I've had a tough time breaking that 7 mile mark...wish me luck! I'll keep you updated from time to time on how it's going :)

I've also been thinking about trying to branch out this summer with beginning to bake again. I found out a few months ago that I can't tolorate gluten; so I haven't baked anything since because I've been afraid that it just won't taste as good or be as easy. So much of what I love about baking is the tradition of it; feeling like I'm tied to all the generations before me that baked for their friends/family using the exact same methods and ingredients. But, now I can't have gluten, so it won't be very traditional...luckily a lot of recipes can be modified. Again...wish me luck!!

So here's to a summer of learning to bake gluten free and getting ready for a race in the fall! I don't know what it is about the sunshine and long days in the summer; but I always seem to make resolutions this time of the year; not at New be continued!

My sister-in-law Chels is an awesome Gluten-Free baker. If you ever need help, she'd be a wonderful resource.

FUN things to look forward to!
