Now, I will get back to barley having time to shower or cook any meal, while resorting to frozen pizzas and ordering out most nights. My five month old still refuses to like sleep and I continue to bump into walls during the daytime. In between all the craziness I dream of new creations like this one, to make and share with you. This is my passion and I can not wait to share more in the years to come.
