Opposite Day

    "Why didn't I learn to treat everything like it was the last time? My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future."

 -Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

          If today were opposite day, I guess this would be how I am feeling.  I woke up with a lot of hope today.  Hope for the future.  When it is all said and done, I don't want us to just 'land on our feet.'   I want to come out on top.  Not in a competitive, high & mighty, kind of way....I just want us to feel like we are living the best versions of ourselves and not just merely surviving.  

But I liked the quote and I wanted to post it anyway.  

In other news, we got 19* inches of snow yesterday, and I don't think I'm ever going to work again.  I'm off to make apple cinnamon french toast casserole.  Wish me luck.  

Love and a preheated oven, 

* It was actually only more like 5 or 6 inches I think, but exaggerating is fun...but only if you tell the truth afterwards.

Hahaha, I think we got 19 inches as well. Ours was 6-8 in reality. And we're supposed to get more this weekend!

I think you're going to have to post that recipe. It sounds like a good Mom's Day breakfast! I got some fancy-shmancy bread from Publix last year (cranberry-grain-nut-something I think) that made great french toast, but I'm always up for new recipes... especially ones someone else has already tried and enjoyed! :)
