April 1st is fast approaching people, but it’s no joking matter—this week starts the media merry-go-round for Homemade with Love! Is it okay to refer to it as such? I probably should run this post by my publicist, or at the very least not be writing it at 3:33am—make a wish! You know that one, where you make a wish whenever the time reads all the same numbers…11:11, 2:22, etc. I’m still a schoolgirl in that I make wishes at any chance I can get, like on the first star at night.

Okay, so maybe this isn’t the perfect recipe, but it is my State of the Union at the moment.

And there are updates—I’ve finally confirmed my Canada trip, and added another event to my North Carolina stop too. Continue reading »
