Pausing on a Friday to thank the South for two things:  Flannery O’Connor (responsible for the title quote) and for giving my amazing family a home of grace and kindness,  humidity and mosquitos. A little recap of my most recent Time Spent.

Southern Lights Gazpacho

Strawberry Salsa

Lunch with my favorite people –

Power Lunch

Give me liberty.

Some enjoy real food, others prefer toes.
