summer in a cup

Monday, July 26, 2010


Nothing says summer like perfectly sweet strawberries with fresh whipped cream.

And if you can buy a cup like this from a street vendor, then listen to a really fun jazz band while sitting on a curb with your best friend (whom you happen to be married to), enjoying a cool breeze and the softening light of the setting sun, well, I'm not sure there's a more perfect evening.


Throw in a liege waffle (we need to try them fresh…these were not all they had been touted to be)…


a beef rib for my man, a chicken kabob for me…


and a fantastic bunch of kids making music with buckets and garbage cans…

and you've got just a few reasons I'm loving west coast living!

by the way, am I really old enough for the (really awful) fashions of my youth to be making a comeback?? I totally wore purple skinny jeans. My parents wouldn't have let me do the safety pin thing…way too edgy.

Eray…yes, it is! Dave had told me all about the farmers market there, so we went the first week we were in town. Lots of fun, snacking our way along :)
