Thank you for being so good to us these past 5 years. We can't even remember life before you. We've enjoyed every adventure we've had so far, and hope for many more years of life adventures with you. Thanks for showing us how to find the simple joys in life. Thank you for teaching us that true love means unconditional love. We've enjoyed every minute we've had together. Most of all, thanks for being our solid foundation in a world so confused on the definition of you.

If you have extra bananas sitting around, I advise that you use them to make these banana cupcakes! It's super easy and they are super yummy! I didn't put nuts on mine. But nonetheless that were tasty! I some how have lots of bananas in my freezer waiting to be used up. So if any of my OHIO friends wants some - leave me a comment and I will so deliver some to your door!
