Grilled Santa Maria tri-tip for dinner with grilled onions and a cabbage slaw. (Not pictured.) All three of those items were sourced from a local farm here in Charlottesville!
Beauty at the St Augustine Lighthouse ⚓️ We climbed every step, all the way to the top!

My ideal view this week 🏖
Some drinks from Florida | Flat white and some early am knitting, a beer while watching the Eurocup! Quite the game! The pub we watched in was so animated, and not at all happy that England lost! 🧶⚽️
Cast on a Summer Shirt yesterday! Took it for a walk this morning. 🧶
A bright and beautiful Niçoise salad for dinner!
I’ve been knitting for around 10 years… a couple years back I retrained myself to go from an “English” style to the “Continental” Style. Somehow along the way I started twisted my stitches… not good! Today I retaught myself and my knitting is looking nice once again! 🧶
Cowboy Take Me Away | boygenius · I’d like an entire boygenius album of the Chick’s covers.
Our friends threw us an amazing 70’s themed ½ birthday dance party bash this weekend. So much dancing and frivolity! (And so much drinking 😳!) Feeling very tired but so loved today!
Coming out of the pandemic one thing I learned is that I love doing an at home manicure… but I hate pedicures at home! I think I’ll head to the salon for one this week! 💅🏼
This sweet and heartwarming video of Dorie Greenspan giving a kitchen tour warmed my heart. Now I think I’ll bake some vanilla sables | Inside Dorie Greenspan’s Kitchen
Enjoying many processed meats while in northern NJ | Taylor Ham, egg, and cheese on a hard roll for breakfast (at a diner!) & a Hirams hot dog for lunch!
Moody light at Common House this am.
What a great day trip to Roanoke, Virginia! 🌟
Life’s been a wild ride recently with dinner parties, work picking up, starting a new side job as a barista, plus doing many fun things during the evenings. So thankful that summer means joy and fun, laughter and excitement, but I especially love summer swims!
I recently came across this beautiful prayer for summer. When I read it out loud to @robertsapunarich I almost cried!
Yesterday my brother took us to the Armand Bayou Nature Center, where he volunteers every week. We also had some delicious Latin American breakfast!
We’ve been having such a fab time on our family vacation to the Texas gulf! Lots of beach time and so much seafood! We went fishing, went to the Moody Garden aquarium, and went to an Astros game. Both @robertsapunarich and I have been having a blast!

A few of the illustrations in a gorgeous 1968 edition of Plato’s Symposium. The artist is Eugene Karlin.
Really enjoying my time in Texas seeing my parents. Here are some highlights so far. Eating Blue Bell Texas Sheet Cake ice cream while watching a lightning storm far off and taco Tuesday at a local bar at the Marina in Granbury.
As a fully vaccinated person it was very thrilling to go to my local Trader Joe’s without a mask! I’m saddened that many still feel the need to wear masks despite being vaccinated, but I know it will be very hard to unlearn these behaviors. I hope I may have inspired others today
American Airlines certainly didn’t make it easy BUT we’ve just rebooked our St. Cuthbert’s way/UK trip for September/October. Praying that things continue to improve between now and then! We’re mostly hoping all the quarantine and testing schemes/protocols have been removed.
