when words fail, s’mores work wonders


Do you ever feel like your days begin one way and end another?? Maybe like this –

  

I have worked like a crazy person around here to bring you all fabulous new things. I believe I have succeeded – and there are more on the horizon. A week from now we will have a new address to meet at (www.feedingbliss.com). It is a waiting game now while all of my data here gets moved there. I don’t know what is worse – moving years of blogging or changing your name with the banks… at this moment I think it’s dead even.

I’ve mentioned my shop before, but now there is a special tab on this webpage for you to browse through my goods, or you could just click here. You will find muffins, cookies, granola, and gift kits, and some beautiful eco-friendly tote bags.

Do you ever feel like a certain treat could say everything you can’t? Or maybe it just reaffirms something, a bond between two people? During this time of year it seems to be s’mores. Eaten over an open flame (or a sink if your stove is freshly cleaned). We needed that yesterday, that wordless conversation. We had used all our words. S’mores make you feel young and carefree and decadent. S’mores, to me, are an inside joke, something very special.

In our house, s’mores require a warm marshmallow (slightly crispy at the edges), melted chocolate and low-fat graham crackers. First, we load up the skewers with fluffy white clouds.   Next, we place the chocolate on the cracker and microwave (if possible) for 20-30 seconds. We really like the chocolate to be melty while the marshmallow is crisp-gooey. The rest is easy assembly. Load that cracker sandwich with the marshmallow and squish. 


and the knot was tied


Well we did it – got hitched. Tied the knot. Pick your cliche term. It was a fabulous weekend and we are EXHAUSTED. The weather was perfect, the company sublime, and the food delicious. I don’t feel I can do our wedding justice in one post so I will spread it out and start with just a few snippits.

Anyways I have thank you cards to get started on… my goal is to have them all mailed by next Saturday. This should keep me busy, along with the joys of being a newlywed and a new dog owner. Yes, that’s right people. The dog is staying. His name is Cody, and he is 4 months old. True to form he loves shoes and toys and treats. Oh and walks and being on the furniture. What a rough life dogs lead!

Please stay tuned for more photos of the wedding and information on the menus and planning and for some exciting changes coming at Feeding Bliss and in the Bliss household.
P.S. Check out this awesome tomato!! Yep we grew that!
