Moving on through sadness...

When we decide to become a mother we make the decision to live forever with our hearts ourside our bodies....later I want to remember who wrote that quote or look it up!

No dinner in this house today...but, trying to move on I found a blog that I am happy I clicked into, maybe tomorrow I will make this online adaptation of  our families delicious Pasta 'e Fajole.
