- my foundation. It's the foundation for all things dance as far as I'm concerned.
- peace of mind. During a class no matter how hard a combination is or how much I'm sucking because I haven't been in a class in years my mind is totally clear. It's the only time I am able to completely shut out the rest of my life. I forgot it was like this and it's incredible.
- work. HARD work.
- ballet. Non-dancers may not understand that but there's nothing quite like a good ballet class. There's nothing that can get you back in "ballet shape" other than, you guessed it, ballet.
- a part of me. No matter how beat up my body is I will always have the desire take a class and work as hard as I can to dance to the best of my ability on that day.

|I promise you the rack is worth it. Such a simple thing makes getting jars out infinitely easier.|
|This is my canning set-up.|

|She wanted him to pick her up but wouldn't let him until she had her favorite things, to include her bunny and baby doll.|
|I don't remember why but this particular morning I didn't head downstairs right away so The LT got her up and watched cartoons with her while I was upstairs.|
|She imitates his posture and mannerisms all the time. It's stinking adorable.|
|She doesn't like to be confined in any way but she let him snuggle like this while watching cartoons in our bed early one morning.|
|The way she's looking at him says it all.|
|They stayed like this for several minutes which is practically an eternity in Belle cuddling.|

- 1 T Crushed Black Pepper
- 4T Salt
- 2T Onion Powder
- 2T Garlic Powder
- 2T Oregano
*Just place all ingredients in a bowl or jar and mix! It's that simple!
I keep ours in a 12oz mason jar with a re-purposed Parmesan cheese container top so I can just shake it out on to whatever I'm cooking. If you use a 12 oz jar, a doubled recipe will almost fill your jar. Put your jar in your spice cabinet and you will always have some on hand when you need it!
