This is my favourite time of year. Peonies are in season! The shops are lit up with twinkle lights. The days are long and the nights are balmy. The weekends are filled with festivities. Lazy days are spent by the beach, drinking in the sunshine. I would prefer to spend as much time away from the hot oven on these glorious summer days, but there is something about the festive season that brings out the Martha Stewart in me. The other night I made chocolate biscotti. The small quiet apartment smelled delicious for hours. Husband came home to the smell of home-baked yumminess, which brought an instant smile to his face. So, there will be a lot more baking this season, for family, for friends, for husband...and may be just for me!

Today I have the house to myself. Husband (which i rarely ever call him, to his face, much to his discontent) has uni all day. So, what's a girl to do, in the small quiet apartment that she has all to herself? A girl that has been married just three months to the week, in an apartment that she rarely ever has all to herself, on a day where chores can be left till tomorrow so she can catch up on lots of sleep. Perhaps, she will continue something she began many moons ago, before she became a married girl, when she had time to sit down and reflect -her blog.
Here I will write only about the things that make me smile - the simple pleasures of life and all the things worth living for. So, as I gaze around the small quiet apartment, an apartment that is feeling more and more like home, I start wondering how long it will be before Husband comes home...
