We walked to Papillote, one of my favorite little places in Savannah, for dinner. It’s like a fancy French to-go restaurant but they have a few tables if you want to eat inside. We ate cheese and baguettes, sipped wine, and talked about traveling. I also ate lots of ice cream. And took a bubble bath.

We finished it all off with a very relaxing rest of the weekend. Lots of cleaning, some furniture rearranging, watching movies, and staying up with new friends until 4am.

I love my life.

This past weekend might have been the best one of my life.

A man gave me a free bike!! That happens to be the perfect size for me. And can be fixed up to be real cute but is perfectly rideable as is (I just got back from the most glorious ride around the park). I can’t get over how it all magically worked out….just in time for my birthday!

We also added a new member to our kitchen family: a much needed cart/table from craigslist (originally from Potter Barn). It fits in our new kitchen and is the perfect place for chopping up lots of veggies.

Aside from that, the weekend was full of sleeping and walking. Walking to the store -especially around dusk- is so relaxing. And if it’s hot out I just walk through the fountains.

P.S. Can’t forget about HP! We went on a date to the theater to see Harry Potter. Smuggled in candy and soda like usual. xo

You know when you spend the day at the beach
(eating, swimming, reading, swimming, napping, swimming, etc.)
and suddenly you realize the beach is nearly empty?
That is my favorite time to be at the beach.
Around 7pm, I can try to surf or skimboard without worrying about
running into people or making a fool of myself in front of a crowd.
The beach belongs to me and whoever is with me.
That is one of the best feelings in the world.
*My dad always said that this time of day is feeding time for the sharks.
Maybe that made it more fun/exciting to play in the water?

Between watching Whale Rider and The Endless Summer, eating coconut frozen yogurt, and spending every spare minute reading*, my love for summer is resurfacing. Thosepictures of Demetria in Greece have contributed as well. I want to go swimming!!!

We are picking up the keys to our new apartment tomorrow! tomorrow! tomorrow! But we’ll be slowly moving everything for a couple weeks. I may have already tried talking Jeff into camping out in the half empty new place.

I tried out a new pizza dough recipe last night. It was so easy and quick. Recipe. Picture.

* I finished reading The History of Love (loved it so much I didn’t understand why it was ending when I got to the last page.) and started reading Crossing to Safety.
