so being Sicilian, my family has a tradition of the St. Joseph Altar each year. Although my grandmother passed away last year, my mom and her family/friends keep this tradition going. We love attending each year and its a huge part of my memories as a child.

The only bad part:
THE COOKIES! Oh the homemade Italian cookies...
they are so good, there are so many to choose from and lots of them to take home :(
I usually keep tempting things out of our home because if its there, I'll eat it! But these cookies made it into our house Sunday after the Altar and we've been munching on them ever since...
Ughhh, so if I don't lose weight this week
its because of these darn, delicious, homemade, Italian cookies!!!

Running update: I took your advice and ran on my own, no stroller and wow it was WONDERFUL! I ran my fastest mile yet and it felt unbelievable! I definitely need to do it more often :) thanks for the advice!!!
