Eliza Jane is One Year Old!

I don't have any new recipes to temp your foodie hearts but I do have some amazing pictures of my even more amazing daughter, Eliza, who just had her first birthday! All the photos you see here were taken by my dear step-son Porter, who, believe it or not, is only 7. Is he not a brilliant, budding photographer?

I just have to say it here, I love my baby girl soooo much, it makes my heart ache. She is the brightest, funniest, dearest little person I could ever have imagined would choose me for her mama. She loves to say "hi-ee" to everyone we meet, give sweet wet kisses to her three big brothers, play with her daddy and listen to his guitar, dance to any music she hears, pullon the kitty's soft tail, and crawl speedily away from me if I tell her to take some mystery item out of her little chipmunk cheeks!

We love you Eliza jane!
