One of the most difficult parts of relocating a family is often the job holder is expected to begin their new role immediately - long before it is feasible, or realistic to move their family across the country. Such is the case with us....once again. Hubby has been working in Portland for the last two weeks. I was lucky to travel to Portland and see him while I visited school options, but our girls had not seen him for two long weeks. It is difficult not having daddy around, especially on the little one.
Hubby's birthday was last week and our girls were eager to celebrate the occasion when he got home. I received Ina Garten's new cookbook "how easy is that?" for Christmas and have wanted to make her red velvet cupcake recipe ever since. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to break out our aprons!
