Around These Parts: Spring 2015

There's been some excitement around these parts lately, and I wanted to share it!

My brother got engaged to his girlfriend!  I am psyched to welcome her to the family.  She has a quick wit, tender heart and impeccable taste in stationery (and men!). 

Derrik and I have been trying to take advantage of our deck and some nice weather by cooking out more on the weekends.  I love how everything tastes better when you grill it.  I'm glad I married a fellow foodie. 

We visited Louisville, Kentucky for the first time.  We took a tour of the campus at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  The grounds are beautiful, as you can see! ^^  

We visited family at the Mississippi Gulf Coast for Memorial Day.  Those tacos were as good as they appear.  They had some sort of Sriracha Ranch sauce concoction.  Whatever it was, I need to replicate it!

I've been getting excited about the prospect of blogging more often.  Here's a snap from the batch of photos of my trip to Varenna, Italy - an area of Lake Como.  It feels good to go through pictures and pick out your favorites.

Thanks for reading!
