Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice . . .

Hello all!  I have missed talking with you every week!  However, there is a good reason for my absence . . . . I am currently baking our second child! :)  We are very excited and looking forward to our new adventure.  However, this excitement comes with a clause . . . I won't be writing for a while!  :(  As with my sweet daughter, this child has blessed me with all-day sickness, for which I take medication and make the occasional trip to the hospital for dehydration.  So far this pregnancy has been better, but I am still classified as having "hypermesis gravidarum" which is a condition less than one percent of pregnant woman have.  Thankfully I have a mild case that can be treated with prescription medication, as some women with this condition spend the entire pregnancy on iv's.  But as you can guess, I am extremely sensitive to smell and often cannot cook at all . . . which unfortunately also rules out baking.

As soon as I feel better, I am sure I will be back at it again with renewed vigor until our next little one arrives.  But until then, if you see me few and far between . . . at least you know why. :)

Happy Baking!
