I’ve been following along with Stephanie Court’s photography project, Twosday, for a while now. Now that I’ve finally jumped in, I hope to participate more in future weeks!

Visit Stephanie’s blog to read the simple guidelines and themes, grab your camera, and link-up! :)


P.S. These photos are from this recent ice cream post on my food blog.

It is SO good to be home. Obviously, I had to run by the fruit stand on my first day back. Ten pluots, six peaches, and a huge basket of golden cherry tomatoes for only eight dollars is reason number 13089305 why I love Lorettelli’s.

In other news, I’m still in South Texas. I’ve been at my great-aunt’s family reunion all day and am getting this post in during a quick run back to the hotel. So far the day has been filled with lots of mingling and meeting new people, lots of family pictures, and lotería. When I return, the mariachi will have arrived and I’m hoping to grab another cup of the yummy pineapple juice I was enjoying in the photo above :)
