My husband seems to think that just the mention of food will make me happy… and sometimes it does. But in general, a lot of things make me smile and fill my life with joy.

I just finished a marathon 9 months of blogging about all-things-wedding, and now I’m going to move onto all-things. I’ll be practicing my cooking, relocating to a new city, looking for a first home, starting a new career, taking lots of doggie walks and being a wife… and that’s all in the next six months!Which is why Haagen-Dazs’ banana splilt ice cream makes me so happy. It takes me back to the age of 12 and the first day I tasted my grandma’s “banana split pie” dessert. Pure enjoyment of the easy life.
