This weekend Isabelle is getting baptized! We’re excited to share her special day with our family and friends, and are looking forward to our close friends coming to visit for the occasion. Joseph will be thrilled to hang out with his friend Della again, Dominic will love having someone new to play with (he had just turned one when they visited last year), and Isabelle will get to meet her new friend, who is only four days younger. We can’t wait!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
