This post is hear to let you know I’m on a Summer Sabbatical until July 16th. That’s a long time to be gone, I know, but it’s for a good reason:
I”m getting married!!!!
Following the wedding, my fiancee Brian and I going on a honeymoon to Mexico City, followed by a trip to the Gulf Coast. We’ll be staying in northern Verracruz, near Papantla, the native region of Vanilla. I’ll be taking a tour of a vanilla plantation, as well as generally devouring everything in Mexico. Follow me on Twitter for updates while I’m gone, but there will be lots of photos and a blog about the trip when I return.
If you’d like to give us a little something for our big day, we’re registered with the Human Rights Campaign. We’re getting married in Ohio, a state that bans same-sex marriage in the state constitution; HRC is workings towards change. Please go here if you’d like to make a donation in our name.
I want to leave you with a wedding cake recipe from 1830, first published in The Frugal Housewife by Lydia Maria Child. It’s very close to my heart because it inspired the name of this blog.
