Hey there! Oh my gosh it has been a while! So it all started with the simple intention of putting up peach preserves. While the peaches were cooking down, I started to look at the now empty room my son Demitri called his own for the last five years. To say sadness over came me would be an understatement. My two dachshunds were looking at me like I really need a trip to the treat jar:) Once I finally stopped crying about my "little" boy being old enough to move out, I decided I couldn't stand to leave the room empty. Time for a change.
