"Change always comes bearing gifts. "~Price Pritchett

"The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions." Ellen Glasgow

I love these two quotes about the concept of change. The following statement has been said a million times before in various ways but I will say it again. Change is inevitable. It is a healthy part of life that helps us grow and expand.

We are enduring some tiny yet dramatic changes in our house today. Our two year old daughter has simultaneously given up her nap and her voracious appetite for vegetables. Friends and family have told us these things would happen eventually. On a scale of life's major events, these milestones are small and innocuous . However, they remind us of how important it is to be flexible and open minded to the changing tides, no matter how big the waves. Here is a delicious recipe for Pink Princess Slaw. It is a delicious side dish sure to be devoured by princesses (and princes ) everywhere, even though it is comprised mainly of cabbage!
