For the First Time Ever

Out of office! And for good reason.
For eleven years now, we’ve been going to a cabin with my family and spend the better part of ten summer days boating, eating lunch on the dock, reading, and picking wild blueberries so we can make blueberry pancakes when we wake up at 9am. We = me.

I could have (and almost did!) schedule posts to go out this week while we’re here. But the truth is that even if I loved the recipes that I was sharing, I would’ve sat ...
