Scenes From Dinner

We have moved! Thursday night was the last night in the condo.  We are now in our new home, and we're ecstatic.  My sweet parents came up this weekend to help us get settled into the new house.  You've never met two people more eager to help!

The new house is so perfect for us.  But I have to give some props to the condo!  It really brought us a lot of fun memories.  When we moved from Columbia, we downsized from a 2200 sq. ft. condo to a 600 sq. ft. condo.  Did I mention we have a 70-lb dog?  We went from 3 bathrooms to just one.  We went from separate closets to one shared teeny closet.  An open closet that masks no new purchases.  Dang.  We  lived on the lightrail in Charlotte and got used to the constant ding-ding-ding of the train.  We took weekend runs from our condo straight into the heart of uptown Charlotte where we stopped for a coffee (Ian) and iced soy chai (me) and then leisurely walked back home. 

We had some of the most fun just cooking together in the tiny kitchen.  Scenes from dinner the other night:

Delicious broccoli rabe steaming for dinner

Fresh mozzerella used to make a salad with basil, tomato, avocado, EVOO, & balsamic

Yes, I drank my sauvingnon blanc with some ice cubes.  Don't judge :)

We've had a lot of great times and fun memories together.  Now, time for more great memories in our new home, which we LOVE!  More details on how that's coming together soon.
