the csa cookbook

Welcome to my favorite month. It’s my favorite for many reasons, the least of which, June just happens to be my birthday month!

I’m not good with numbers. But this is what I do know… I’ve been home for a little over 2 weeks. I just downloaded 2 memory cards containing 2,655 pictures. I just transferred 114 pictures from my phone to my computer. I managed to tick off 37 states in 48 days on The CSA Cookbook […]
