Paris: just the beginning

One of my favorite things about being a blogger is that if I go MIA like I have a bit recently, you will not hesitate to come find me! Even if my hub finds it a bit funny to feel this attached to a stranger, thank you to all of you who emailed and even called our office recently to find out if everything was okay and that I was fine. I am here to announce that I am just fine, hunky dory in fact and I have just been taking a little bloggy break mostly because I have been abroad, on vacation or on business trips. Oh and there is that whole summer thing happening around here that is making it kind of hard to get to the computer…. just saying. I want you to know that I am back at it, back in the swing of things…

A beautiful Saturday

The place: Sonoma …wandering around abandoned vineyards.  When: Definitely Spring. This past Saturday to be more specific. …cherry trees in bloom. … baby figs. What: an afternoon of relaxation & a bit of fun. …realized I am hardly ever in the pics of where we go. Destination: The Girl & the Fig …can you even believe that there is a such a place an hour from my home and I have never been there?? My drink: A Fig Royale … my new favorite drink. My date: My husband Our dinner: Flounder in a brown butter & fried caper sauce on a bed of mashed potatoes and spinach. …uummmm, do I really need to say anything else? Skirt Steak with a wine and veal reduction with fingerling potatoes and spring greens …eric had a hard time parting with more than one bite of this…
