This pic is from Mykonos. A guy had some crates of shallots eggplant, some yellow mums all out of a clown like three wheeled van/ pick up and these perfectly perfect ripe cherry tomato jewels . All I want to do is get some delish crusty bread toast it in olive oil and teeny bit of butter rub a garlic clove all over it and then take the best tomatoes, slice 'em and dice 'em throw in some red onion ,a lot of basil (and maybe some mint how about some fresh oregano or even cilantro ) and drizzle on some extra virgin and balsamic and I will be in heaven! How's that for a run on sentence? My taste buds are watering but I need to go do hair and make cereal for the huddled masses yearning to break free of their school routine ......
A Life full of fun, five wonderful kids,cute husband, amazing family,and a catering business as the cherry on top!

I am finally getting to my summer pic's ( it's like wedding thankyou's , there's a window) -and if you haven't already heard I'm a world traveler now. Yep, I traverse the globe and it's no big whoop. Jet lag is my homie. I laugh in the face of baggage claim and sneer at airplane food ( except for the cookies on Delta mmmm) . Here I am with the Acropolis ..... it was awe inspiring. Hot , humid and the granite underfoot was slick and shiny from centuries of visitors. The site was filled ancient broken capitals and columns and quite a few ferrel cats and dogs. Thousands of people walked the gravel filled paths and I would try to squint my mind to imagine what it must have been like to enjoy the buildings in their prime. I feel sooo lucky I was able to see so much of Greece and to have had such an amazing time with OG GlamMom and Hilari. I'll never forget the side splitting laughter, room service cheese plates, table 8, ruins, water taxis, architecture, street markets, speedos, and gelato. I don't think it could have been any more wonderful!
