Although busy season is usually the time of year where scrambled eggs and freezer-to-table turkey chili are my saviors, I have managed to find time for culinary creations this year! Maybe it’s because I have the weeknight routine down for effortless meals as this is now my fourth busy season. Or, maybe it’s because Sundays spent with a Gatorade and french fries are far less frequent than in my younger years. It’s been a busy season of first time food adventures for me. I attempted chocolate mousse for the first time, although that was a failure, I can learn from my mistakes. My first ever risotto may have been phony since it was made in the oven, no stirring required, but it was creamy and delicious.

So many upcoming weddings at MMB, so glad to say that mine is one of them! I would like to say that I have been so stressed and everything has basically been taken care of, however, it is the exact opposite!! In a little over 5 months our family and friends will gather together to celebrate and at this rate there may or may not be music playing and a seat to sit in! Kidding, I am not that far behind! I never realized how much goes into planning such an event and I still have yet to confront myself with the bulk of it!

Well here we are again, half way through another busy season. As the amount of work really starts to pile up, lot of people try to have something in mind that they can look forward to after busy season. For some people it might be a vacation, for others it might just be more free time. For me, it’s the Royal Wedding! That’s right in 3 short months Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say “I do”.

The “easy” part of tax season has passed and now we dawn on February when things start to heat up in the tax department. We all come together and get the work done, it’s quite the team effort here! Spirits are really great here but truth be told, we already are itching for the spring to come to be at home with our friends, families, and … dogs.

This January has been quite the cold one, but I was lucky enough to take a break from the cold and head to the Caribbean for a week. Imagine that…a week in the Caribbean during January (busy season)! My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year, so my extended family took a trip to the Dominican Republic.
