summer in the city

: oh : me : oh : my :

Hello, to my third day of summer vacation!
Apparently, other than weekends and sporadic happenings, I'm terrible at posting towards the last half of the school year.  But--BUT--it's now officially summer in the city: our mini (fake-ish) garden is impressing me, our hydrangeas are pink and blue and shades in between, our house is clean and the AC is on, and we're home from the City by the Lake after being there to celebrate our very first wedding anniversary!  It is insane to me that our wedding was a year ago--sometimes it feels like just a couple of months ago and that we're just learning how to live together, and other times I can't remember what it was like to not be with him.  Either way, life with Tec is as good as it gets.

So anyway, this post is dedicated to summer in the South, my man, cutting rosemary to arrange in bouquets, and to our home being full of friends, the air conditioner, ice water, and the smell of homemade bread.  (Pssst--Keep an eye out for a post soon with the recipe my Martha-Stewart-mother-in-law gave me for her homemade bread/rolls!  Get ready to indulge yourself in your carb intake for the year!)
