Random Ramblings And A Cookbook Giveaway

Since my trip out to Austin with the hubs has come to 
an end, I find myself planning summer vacations, quick weekend getaways, anniversary parties and summer birthdays for a certain soon-to-be 10 year old.
I know that planning and dreaming up places to visit is fun.
I know a couple of people (maybe more) who actually go on travel websites and look at luxury resorts, researching fun things to do while at the fantasy vacation and 
dreaming that someday that will all come true.
Isn't that fun? 
I have to admit I've done it too ;)
After all, who doesn't want to traipse along white sandy beaches of Grenada,

Go snorkeling in the coral reefs of Belize

Go brocante shopping in the French Countryside

or riding  a motor scooter through
Sicily?

Like this one?
I know I do.

In the meantime I am happy to take pictures of 
cacti and their pretty flowers


happy to take a quick snapshot of my hubby enticing a friendly squirrel to come to him



and wandering around our State Capitol dreaming about
how life must have been in the late 1800's when this building was still fairly new.









{It's awesome rotunda!}





In any case, as far as going away...
It's always good to come back home!
