My perpetually changing, personal waste of cyberspace.

From the Delivery Room

The beating of your heart plays on the machine across the room. In the distance, I hear a new baby crying and I can't help but think that soon, it will be you that I'm hearing.

Your mommy's finally getting some rest. We're both very tired, but I won't complain. She has the hardest job of all, and she's been through so much just to get you here.

Lessons Not Learned

I should have learned this lesson a long time ago. Searching for something that isn't there for so many years has taken an emotional toll on me. I've dragged myself through hell and back too many times now. I should've known better. I should've realized it sooner.

Just like the last time, this is the last time.

Chocolate Melting Cake Recipe

I actually got this recipe on our last cruise, but didn't remember that I had it until recently. This isn't a copycat recipe, it's the real deal straight from Carnival.

Note: Make sure the eggs are at room temperature and chocolate is warm enough while making the mixture.

Cayman Lemonade

Another great cocktail that I discovered in the Cayman Islands. This one will make you forget all your worries...and the rest of the day. Credit for this beast of a beverage goes to Donovan over at Tiki Beach.

Cayman Punch

Here's a great rum punch cocktail that I discovered while vacationing on Christmas Eve in Grand Cayman. If you love rum punch, grab a chair...and a glass.

Want something a little stronger? Try one of Donovan's Cayman Lemonades.
