Goodbye St. Croix, Hello Charlotte

  It’s been surreal being back in Charlotte.  It’s where my husband and I spent most of our lives {funny enough, in the same circles but never quite meeting until we finally did}.  The moment we were served drinks on the plane, I stared in disbelief at the ice in my cup which just a..read more

Daddy’s Birthday

And here’s how we spent it. Brunch Coffee Picking pumpkins Feeding animals And eating lots of daddy’s favorite seafood.  {This is what 5 lbs of shrimp, 4 lbs of mussels, 5 dozen clams, and 3 dozen oysters look like}. Happy birthday, daddy! I love you from the bottom of my heart. Love, Your Soogee

I’ll never be too proud to admit that sometimes, I can be a dolt. The very first time (and only time ever, mind you) that I was involved in a “car accident” happened all because of an ice cream cone. True story. It seems that my preoccupation with food is an expansive monster. If ever..read more

Today was a terrific day.  You know how sometimes you can just smell the rain?  It’s those moments right before when everything is still dry but there’s a wonderful moistness in the air that makes your arms feel all sticky and cool all at once and the breeze just picks up and makes everything smell..read more
