I am not a writer.

I am not well spoken.

I have no idea how to use my new camera!

I don’t really know the first thing about blogging.

I do enjoy putting my thoughts into words.

I’ve learned how to use spell check and a thesaurus:)

I push all the buttons on my camera until my shot looks good!

I’m not afraid to try.

Next year I am going to try more new things, this feels really good!

My brownies that I made yesterday are a first for me too.  I never tried using mint in a baked good before.  I thought I would personally despise them, but for the sake of blogging I wanted to share a recipe that you could make for your Holiday meal.  Not only did I not hate them, I am totally and completely in love!  These are by far the best brownie I have ever tasted!!!
