Well hello there folks.
I can’t believe it is September already. Though I am pretty sure I say that every year when September rolls around. Oh, well. On the bright side pumpkin spiced coffee is out and the air is beginning to smell distinctly like fall (anyone else notice that?) so things could be worse. If summer has to fade. at least it fades into fall.
We had quite a few adventures here on Abbott Street this summer. Including, but not limited to:
-my first adventure with a weekly CSA box (many, many recipes to come)
-camping trips to Nelson’s Ledges and Summersville, WV
-countless late night flow jams (that drew quite some attention from the bar patrons next door)
-an impressive increase in puppy training after Rascal ate a whole pack of sugarfree gum (Spoilers: xylitol is a main ingredient and crazy poisonous to dogs! Rascal was perfectly ok thanks to our resident Cam-bulence)
-traded out roommate ben for roommate rob, everyone say “hiiii rob”
-traded out kitten Chili for Godiva and Cinnamon’s brother, Shrek (surprise! he looks just like them)
-spent a weekend in Atlantic City and spent more money on food than drinks and gambling
-welcomed the beautiful baby Opal Therese to the world, daughter of roommate Ben and his lovely wife Annie
And when I started that list I was sitting here thinking that very little had happened in the last few months…
So what is to become of this space?
Honestly, I don’t know. I’ve been having trouble making up my mind with a lot of things lately so I’m going to try to keep it simple. Ideally:
-Restaurant reviews: because Kyle likes writing them and we love food probably too much
-Recipes: Because chopping veggies is my happy place
-Gratitude: Because it’s all about the little things.
-Simplicity: Because it’s something I’ve been striving for
