A few people remarked to me this past weekend how much Andy speaks out at his BBQ competitions and how different he is and I've been pondering this over these past few days. No matter how much time and money this BBQ thing has taken up, it is worth it.

It overwhelms my heart to know how happy he is and to watch him proudly serve his BBQ goodness to the public . I'm overwhelmed at the friends he's gathered through this, the new friends, and the old. I'm overjoyed that Kellen, his best friend since first grade, shares this passion and that they get to spend so much more time

It was a small gathering of family and friends, all the people that have given and supported these boys over the past 9 months. And I am thankful. I am thankful for my husband who found his passion and had the ambition to make his dreams come true. I have a hard time remembering why he is doing this sometimes. While it is fun, he hopes to one day cater full time and do this as a
