Bits of....

I am gonna toot my own horn - I cook a mean piece of Salmon! Big news, because I am not a seafood person, don't like it much at all - however Salmon is my new thing, esp over quinoa with lots of fresh squeezed lemon. This was a garlic dill salmon - soooo good! 

Moscow Mules - offically the drink of the Summer. Fresh lime juice and ginger beer - 300% refreshing!!! Especially when enjoyed al fresco and chatting with your fun new neighbors!

Every night should end with a relaxing break on the deck with one you love! Yesterday we ended things right! 

And some fun extras - that didn't make it to instagram! ;) 
LEFT: I think we found our new deck table.....Super sale and able to seat 6+! 
RIGHT: A little visitor I spotted while getting up early for work! He politely ruffled around int eh dirt of my plants and got it everywhere...pshhh!

How were your weekends?!

  1. Hi girl! Can I come to your place for some tasty salmon if I go to Chicago for a scientific conference? That looks good.
    Hope settling after the move is going well.
