An anniversary dinner. At home. Because it’s been far too long since I was able to be in my kitchen for fun, with wine and music and a fridge full of ingredients. Note Jeff’s face in the second photo. That is a first taste face. There was caramelized chicken with mushrooms sauteed in butter and white wine and herbs from the balcony. There was garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. And after a nap there was the best strawberry shortcake (mother’s recipe), with fresh whipped cream with a cuppa night coffee. Over the weekend there was a date to see Casablanca in a theater downtown prefaced by coconut ice cream.
This past month I have been schooling furiously. I took a ceramics class and fell in love and I took a college algebra class and am happy to say I never have to take a math class again. I am patiently awaiting my grades. It is good to be back to regular life. Happy summertime!

How can one year feel so long and so short at the same time?
Yesterday was our ONE YEAR anniversary.
We spent most of it driving back from NC in a car with no air conditioning,
eating the most missed, most wonderful food (at the restaurant where we had our first date in 2006!),
and munching on ice and slushies & car dancing for eight ours.
Jeff, I’m so excited about our future adventures. I love you more than ice cream.
