i love me a french braid

listen half of the members aren't on Facebook so i had to remember how to blog. and it wasn't easy. but like a good pioneer i didn't give up even when it was real hard. well, i bet some of the pioneers gave up but i have a suspicion that their diaries were never published for obvious reasons.

moving on. i have this idea that we can meet the third sunday of each and eat lunch and talk about books that are sort of mormony or loosely mormony or just tangentially mormony.

and better than the reading i think we should eat mormon food.

for the month of december lets just meet and talk about things we want to read and eat.
