"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Once in a while, Nich will make dinner.

We used to cook together all the time, but now that I'm home full-time, I make the meals. I'm okay with that.

But it's such a treat when Nich decides to cook, because when he does, he makes fancy stuff.

Like this.

Ever since I introduced him to Pioneer Woman and her Tasty Kitchen recipe site, Nich has discovered a newfound love for cooking. It's because PW includes step-by-step pictures with her recipes.

I'm not kidding. He's said as much.

Anyway, we had the chicken parm for dinner last week. It called for red wine, and since we don't generally buy reds (I'm allergic to the tannin), we took a walk to the wine & spirits store to see what they had. Lo and behold, they had these perfectly sized bottles of wine.

The best part (other than the scrumptious dinner)? One of those cute bottles is now holding the healthy remnants of my daisy bouquet from three weeks ago.
