Hey there long time no post huh sorry about that I have been busy with finals and the semester is finally over. I have been super busy finishing up the room its taking a while to finish the trims my husband chose to stain them mahogany cherry Im still not completely sold on the idea I wanted them a simple color like white but it is both of our room and we both have to like it so its ok. Im hopping that once they are done ill fall in love with them. In the mean while here is a recipe of one of my favorite soups I hope you try it out let me know how it goes.
