Happy Summer!

Today is the first day of summer, and I am soooo excited.  While Spring is definitely my favorite season, summer runs a close second with it's long hot days and cool dusky evenings, water fights in the afternoons and ice cream cones.  We're in Georgia still, and it is hawt here.  Very, very hawt, and very, very humid. We're looking for apartments in north Atlanta (not to be confused with north Georgia as we learned) and will be settling here for a little while.  But who knows for how long?  We don't.  I'm actually kind of excited about having my own kitchen again, and recreating some of the amazing food we had abroad while revisiting some of the things we (I) missed most.  Read: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Oh, and guess what?  We have a car again which means we can cover miles in a matter of seconds, instead of kilometers in matters of minutes by foot.  But you know something?  The walking was pretty wonderful.  It gave us a chance to stop and notice the beautiful little things that you miss as you fly by so quickly and efficiently in your car.
