I made pizza and it was amazing.

if I ever have a son

Because I can’t seem to backup my hard drive enough to not lose everything every five to seven years, I’ve decided that I’m going to put things that I want to remember onto my blog. Not things like my grocery list. That would just be silly now wouldn’t it? (I’ve found a great droid app … Continue reading
