Quick looks at past posts…

For a few days at a time, I will be stickying various posts from the very beginning of our blogging journey. Some of these posts will be from 2015! I think you will see a big difference between our posts then and our posts now.

Don’t worry though! We will still be writing new posts. If I have a chance this week, I will be hopefully be writing a post about our day at the San Diego County Fair this past Saturday. And I think Josh has a post planned about orange sorbet!
