With so much zucchini, I’ve been trying to get creative here, and recently came across a recipe for stuffed zucchini boats. I served them for dinner the other night and they were so good!

It was tough to choose the “why” that I want to focus on because there are more than a couple of “why’s” that define why I live my life the way I do. I decided on something that I am passionate about. It helps to shape who I am and is something I want to share with others. So what is my “why”?…laughtogether(photo credit: Lindsay Nicole Photography) Continue reading
