My Dad's Birthday

Today I am thankful for the greatest man I ever knew... my father. It is his birthday and I will miss fixing him banana pudding, giving him a gift he will always return because he feels we need the money more than he needs the gift, and kissing his bald head. He taught me how to enjoy life, how to not sweat the small or the large stuff, and how to love. I miss your baby blue eyes, your cute little smirk, and your jokes that you told over and over again. I love you and miss you daddy.

Pomegranate Heaven!

I have loved living in the warm climate of Southern Utah for many reasons. For months now I have watched the pomegranates grow on our neighbors' trees. They are beautiful. Big and red.

Today I seeded all the pomegranates we were given by our wonderful neighbors. They are so yummy. This is only about a third of what we now have!

I googled how to seed them and how to freeze them. It was so easy and quick...and we now have a bounteous crop of pomegranate seeds. Brooklyn and I plan to plant our own pomegranate tree next year...but until then, we are so blessed.
