Yes, I know I’ve been absent as of late. Here’s why:
The last of my family just left yesterday, so it’s been a whirlwind of traveling, fun, and family.
We were married on 10/10/10 (running joke-we had to choose an easy to remember date, since it took Jeff 5 years of dating and living together to remember my birthday.) We traveled to a cabin just outside of Gatlinburg, TN, (I cannot recommend Stonecreek Cabins highly enough, definitely consider them if you are going to be traveling to that area) drove up with all our stuff, my dress, and the dog. We had a lovely time resting, relaxing, reading, and hiking.
Right, and we got married too!
It was absolutely perfect. We had beautiful weather, and a wonderful trip overall.
We returned home, and got ready for the party. Since it was just the two of us on top of that mountain, we wanted to have a party to celebrate with our family and friends.
And celebrate we did! I prepared a bunch of food, friends and family brought their specialties, and we catered in a HUGE amount of BBQ from the iconic Tom Jenkins’ BBQ here in Fort Lauderdale. 13 chickens, 8 pounds of brisket, and 8 pounds of pork, to be exact.
And the centerpiece of the desserts, an awesome chocolate on chocolate creation from Pam of Pam’s Gluten Free Kitchen.
It tasted even better than it looked. Chocolate cake, with chocolate ganache between 3 layers, and chocolate buttercream icing. YES. Life is good.
So that’s where I’ve been. Sorry for the lack of updates!
We’ll be back to our “regularly scheduled programming” very soon. I have a bunch of half finished posts, and even more ideas in my brain.
Thanks for your patience!
Love and gluten free cake!
