I'm Back!

After a few years hiatus (I never planned on leaving my blog for so long) and pretending that Tumblr was where it's at (it's ok, but not my fave), I've decided to return!  Lots has happened since my last post in the spring of 2012.  Seriously, three years is a long time.  Since my last post we bought a house in Florida, Miss Priss has joined our family, the Hubs took a new job, we sold our house in Floirda, I left my job, we moved to Georgia, bought a new (to us) house, and we're trying to get settled in the Atlanta area.

I still miss our awesome little backyard in Gainesville.

I for one, am so glad to be back in the real South (no offense, Florida).  Gainesville was really good to us and we had a lot of fun, but it was so hot ALL THE TIME.  I don't want to live in the land of snow and ice, but I did miss getting to experience winter weather for more than two weeks each year.  It just doesn't feel Christmasy when you're wearing shorts and flip flops.

There have been a lot of ups and downs in the last six months, and I'll be honest, living in an apartment for a while after you've had your own house is tough.  I finally have my own 'real' kitchen in the new house. It helps that Miss Priss is a little more independent and I'm able to enjoy cooking a little more. I've been able to stay home for a while, which has been so much fun.  I know it won't last forever so I'm going to enjoy it while I can.

Stone Mountain laser show, ftw!

For now, we're still settling in and learning our way around.  Stay tuned for new adventures and food discoveries!  I'm also on the hunt for delicious diners and Mom & Pop restaurants in North Fulton (Roswell, Alpharetta, Cumming), so suggestions are appreciated.
