Motherhood is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I've never been more exhausted, had greater demands to meet, put myself aside so completely . . . or been happier. Viv and I are learning each other and bonding more every day. She's such a wonderful little person already, and I've gotten to focus so exclusively on her thanks to my unbelievably supportive family. My parents came to stay with us for a week, taking care of all of the cooking and cleaning and answering my every beck and call. I'll blog more about their time here once I get the pictures from it.

Just before they left my sister arrived to take over their duties. She's a great photographer (with extremely reasonable prices!) and has been doing Vivian's newborn photos in addition to taking care of us. I can't wait to post those either, but until they're finished I wanted to share one of the delicious recipes she's cooked up! This veggie powered quinoa bowl is packed full of amazing nutrition and the flavor to match it. Makes good new mama food, and it's a recipe I'll definitely be saving to make again! It's a great one-dish meal too. I hope you try it and love it as much as I did!
