I just found this pic of @epsilon and me visiting the Grand Canyon around 2007. Chris was scrawny, I had no idea what a sleepless night was, pre-babies and calligraphy business. Chris was heading in the Econ/finance track. I was going to have art shows in galleries. We were both so wrong about the future, but real life proved to be way better. #tbt

heidi_aiti : I'm trying to think where I was in 2007... I graduated from college with my useless math degree that year. I had a miscarriage that really threw me for a loop, even though it was a completely unanticipated pregnancy. My husband was still working on his degree, and working full time at the same time. Our plans were all up in the air. Nine years later, things are more different than I could ever have imagined, but you're right, it's way better!
momtheintern : The you I remember, from Cougar Creations!
cheznud : This. Is. Amazing.
drlbennett : Love the haircut!
simpulton : Oh man! I can't wait to tease @epsilon about that 'stache! Haha
ctsk : β™‘β™‘β™‘β™‘β™‘
joiemacarons : Love this. Strange how things rarely go the way we plan!
susannahfurr : Cute!

Sharing my secret to rustic tomato awesomeness on the blog today. @foodmadebytom taught me how. So you can thank him. See link in profile. #selfproclaimedfoodie

emihill : Mmm...
melissapher : @suzcunningham sharp knives. My parents gave us Shun Damascus steel knives for Christmas a couple years ago. Worth every penny. They're so sharp they cut through tomato skins like a hot knife through butter.
malorystallings : Amen to sharp knives!! Chef used to always tell us, "if you can hear crunching as your knife slices through an onion, you need to leave and don't come back till its sharp." Get an electric sharpener, they're easiest to figure out, and if you've never sharpened your knives run them through about 50x per grade, then hone. @suzcunningham
suzcunningham : My knives are from Target and have never ever been sharpened 😩 @malorystallings
melissapher : @suzcunningham your man needs to get you a shun for Valentine's Day. πŸ˜‰ They're expensive, but just start with 1. Get like the 7" curved blade. There's a technical name for the blade and I'm blanking on it. It'll make such a difference! We have a guy sharpen our blades once a year and we hone in between. When honing you actually go slowly and in one direction. Changing that made our knives last longer between sharpening.
suzcunningham : Wow y'all are legit!! My birthday is this month so maybe I need to drop some hints lol!
malorystallings : @melissapher Santuko?
malorystallings : @suzcunningham lol yea I went to a fancy school and cheffed around a bit, now I just make gourmet Mac n cheese for my minions πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I feel your pain- my mom has Walmart knives and same situation. Yes, if you don't have ridiculous amounts of time, def go the route of having someone else sharpen them! I like sharpening my knives, but in calligraterms, it's like making your own holder or just buy one. Any knife is usable as long as they are sharp, but the expensive knives like Wusthoff (a harder, heavier German steel) and Shun (softer, lighter Japanese steel) are better quality steels and build etc. Santuko is a type of knife, like Chef or boning etc. I love it- it's my go to knife.

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that we're doing alright. Tag a friend that rocks the whole parenting thing. The past couple days have been familial bliss. The kids have been dreamy. I know these moments don't usually last long so I'm going to fill my emotional canteen as much as it can hold. Because things are going to get rough. They always do with the ebb and flow of parenthood. #calligraphyquoteoftheday Penned with @yokepencompany Japan ink, brause rose nib, @johnnealbookseller double holder on rhodia paper. Quote submitted by @ajillianthings_shop. PM your favorite silly or inspirational quotes of you want to see it written out. If I choose yours, I'll mail you the original. 😘
