ahhh summertime.

The week has been a whirlwind of jumping back into this world again after my brief interlude in the other world of Haiti.  But summertime is one of my most favorite times, so it is not taking long to make the most of it….

…iced coffee on the deck…

…growing tomatoes and basil for margherita pizza…

..baking a vanilla bundt to top with real whipped cream and fresh raspberries…

…enjoying some silliness with my girl and her besties…when the big bopper crashed their photo shoot!

And I have even started crossing items off of my
