Caprese Salad Skewers

Posted by Lacey May 9th, 2009

Posted by Lacey February 8th, 2009

Every Sunday morning after church, my cousins, aunts, and uncles would cram into every little nook and cranny at my grandparents’ house. One group gathered around a card table to watch my grandpa and my uncles play a fierce game of Wist, the girls hibernated to my aunt’s room to gossip about boys, and the [...]
