Long Weekend

Jake and I just returned from a long weekend in his hometown. We went back to attend the funeral of a dear family friend who lost her life after a courageous 6 month battle with pancreatic cancer. Funerals are never easy and we are emotionally drained. However, we did get a chance to celebrate Linda's life with many loved ones. Jake's mom delivered a beautiful euology at the funeral that made us laugh and cry. Please remember to live each day fully, and always remember, "at least you made a memory." (Linda's words)
Before leaving for Atlantic, Jake and I whipped up a meal with random stuff in the refrigerator.

We ended up with tomatoes, kale, mushrooms, and green onions over whole wheat spaghetti. I sauteed the kale in olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes before adding the tomatoes, mushrooms, and green onions. Pretty darn good!
