November is here and Paper Tastebuds is making a comeback! Slow and steady but I’ll be returning to the blog for more fun content this month after a couple months of being in a new-baby-bubble. I’m kicking it off with some kid stuff, which is sure to make an appearance more often now that its on my radar.
