middle east travel picturesAfter the longest day of travel in the history of the world (ok, it wasn’t actually the longest travel day, it just felt like the longest travel day), the Smooches and I are back in Denver!

oman travel picsAs we try to reacclimate to winter and Mountain Standard Time, I thought I’d share some fun news (and a few pictures of the rest of our trip).

oman travel picsYou probably know this, but Jordan loves to cook. And she’s really good at it. In fact, I have been trying to convince her to blog her culinary adventures more regularly here on kojo for the last few years. Good news- her pure passion for all things cooking plus her need to share her vast knowledge with whoever will listen (seriously, being in the kitchen with her is like watching a cooking show) has finally triumphed over her seriously spotty internet! Starting this month, Jordan will be adding a dash of delicious to the blog. After eating her cooking for the last month, I can hardly contain my excitement!
