Oh my heavens!
Have I ever missed you lovelies!
It has been radio silence on this end for almost 2 months and I am chomping at the bit to reconnect with you all.
And what was the reason for going dark?
Well, in a nutshell:
- We sold our home of 15 years
- Bought and moved into my parents home, about half the size of our old home
- As a result of the aforementioned ‘half the size’ thing, we are still in the midst of a significant downsize.
- Mom and dad left a lot of furniture and memories behind, so we’ve been going through that as well.
- We graduated one from college!
- Threw a wee party to celebrate the graduation
- Flew across the country to Iowa for a doctor’s appointment. (To all my Iowa City peeps…what a lovely town you have! Such a well kept secret!)
- Attended an out of town bridal shower
- Attended a lovely wedding
Swam with sharks
I think that’s about it. When I put it on paper it doesn’t seem like so much, but man, have we been busy! Downsizing is not for the faint of heart! We’ve been in the house for a month now and still can’t get a car into the garage…but I feel like it’s gonna happen soon! (Send good vibes!)
Enough about me! What have you been up to?
Several of you reached out over the past 2 months to ask if everything was OK! I cannot tell you how great that made me feel. We can complain about the lack of real human contact that technology might cause, but at the same time, we are making connections with folks that we might not have the opportunity to meet where we live! That can’t be a bad thing.
I made these Carne Asada tacos the other night and they were a HUGE hit! Definitely keeping this recipe.
Also made this Street Corn salad to accompany the tacos…double delish.
What do you keep your thermostat set to over the summer? I’m good with the 78° during the day, but at night I really sleep better if it’s a good bit cooler.
Take advantage of the abundance of tomatoes and make this smoky tomato jam! One of my all-time favorite preserves.
Amazon is starting to roll out deals in anticipation of Prime Day next week. Are you a Prime Member? If not, now is a good time to join (pssst…you can join for free for 30 days to take advantage of Prime Day deals!)
Well my friends, I’m going to go hang a few pictures and unpack a few boxes. But I’ll be back soon, I promise.
