Hello! August was a busy month for our family, and blogging — well, it just fell off my radar. For example, see my kiddos with their adorable cousins. How could I do anything else except squish those faces?
We went back to the U.S. for a few weeks to visit with family and friends. It was a whirlwind. We flew to Seattle first, which is actually “only” an eight and a half hour flight from London because you fly over the North Pole. The kids are unhappy to report that they didn’t see Santa. After Seattle, we headed back East — I took a detour to meet my new nephew in New Haven, Connecticut, while the rest of the family went south to Charleston. After Charleston, we hit south Florida, then ended in Washington, DC.
Phew — I’m tired just retyping our crazy trip! Of all the places we went and food (oh, the food) we ate, one particular meal stands out for me in particular — a hot summer lunch at The Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan’s Island in Charleston.
