I just spent a lovely long weekend in St. George, Utah with my family.  It’s always nice to reconnect- there are a lot of miles between us these days so, these gatherings don’t happen nearly often enough.

Want to know an embarrising secret?  I’m the shortest out of the sisters (at 5’9″) and I have the biggest feet!  How completely UNFAIR is that 🙂

SO not cool…  hahahah!

This mouth-watering Grilled Lime Salmon was part of our Sunday Dinner…. it’s so simple to make and tastes amazing!

While we were there we celebrated our brother’s birthday.  It was so fun to cook and talk in the kitchen with my sister’s and our mom… priceless.
