Really really here! I promise!

So much to tell!!!

We are going through some major changes in our lives. I just got my dream job. GO ME! I start next Monday and I am beyond excited about it. I will still be a children's librarian, I will be doing dozens of storytimes all the time ... I will actually get to do things I really care about. My husband just got a new job really near mine that he starts around the first-ish. We realized how hard that would be with just the one car so we are also probably moving to be closer to both of our jobs. So ... yeah. A ton of changes and they're all happening right now. EEEP!

Maybe this is only funny to me ... The Kins and I were emptying the dishwasher today and I was telling her about her grandmother (tomorrow is grandparents day after all!) and I recited to her my mother's favorite nursery rhyme:
Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such sport and the dish ran away with the spoon.
Kinsie looked up at me, then grabbed all the spoons from the dishwasher and ran away. I think I may have to change her nickname from Kins to Dish.

I made a very Colorado dinner tonight. I went to the farmer's market this morning (I really hope there is one near our new home!) and got peaches, corn, and tomatoes. The corn was served with my famous (well, famous to me) chive garlic butter, the peaches were cut up and sprinkled with raw sugar (because they aren't as sweet as Colorado peaches), and the tomatoes were paired with mozzerella, basil, oregano, and balsamic vinegar. It was one of those insanely healthy dishes that the junk food lover in me didn't want to love but that just really made me happy.

PS - Mom - if dad wants to use the picture from the post below on his website I would encourage it. I'm pretty sure it was taken by your phone and it's one of my favorite pictures.
