Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

A post to fill in the blanks of other things that have happened these past weeks.

We are still cooking, literally and figuratively, tried some new recipes as well as old favorites. I will post the new ones at some point.

Jeff sold his house in Maine. Yay! Cross one thing off of our list.

My house is still on the market. We put a contract on the new one we are building. I cannot wait to see all of the things we picked out come together.

Keegan is doing very well in school. They had official school pictures day a few weeks ago. I was at his school to visit twice this week. Once on Tuesday for curriculum day and then today for a farewell lunch for one of his teachers.

We actually have a gift registry up. We have most of the basics so we stuck to things for entertaining and specialty items. And any excuse to get new dishes!

The wedding plans are cruising along. Keegan is coming with us now and he very excited. He will be hanging at the villa with his grandparents and my little brother while Jeff and I spend two nights in an oceanfront suite here. And we have a whole spa day planned too. A very masculine one for Jeff. Otherwise we're not leaving the room!

I had my hair consultation last night and we took pictures for me to bring to St. Croix to replicate there. I will also have my hair done for the party in NH.
