MIA

Life is busy, life is full and as much as I wish for it to slow down sometimes, life is good. Our weekends are filled with friends and family and travels. And our weeks are busy with work and small group and trying to squeeze in some quality time with each other. But time is flying by and I am thankful to enjoy it. Here’s a quick recap of our lives the past few months according to my iphone:

We spent a weekend in October with the Neely family at Pawley’s Island. It always feels good to be near the water. Something about it..

We saw John Legend in concert for the first time. A-mazing. If you get the chance, go. I’m now stalking tour dates because that definitely won’t be the last time.

My dear friend Ashima came to visit & she taught me how to cook Indian food!

And we went to the NC state fair. Note to self: Do not go the state fair on the opening weekend. ever. again.

We fostered this little pup named Tebow – & he melted my heart!

We went to visit these two lovebirds up in NYC.

Spent Thanksgiving down in SC with my parents.

Spent my first Christmas in NC with the Neelys!

Spent some time before Christmas in Blowing Rock with the Neelys.

Spent a weekend in VA beach with my college roomies watching a friend get married.

And most excitingly..

Welcomed this sweet, sweet baby nephew of mine into the world on December 14th. He is a joy and a blessing and we are so thankful for his life.

That’s a pretty short recap for what the past 3 months have entailed. But we will try to not be missing in action from this little blog again!

The Macaron

macarons, originally uploaded by MackieAndRyan.

So, it is my goal tomorrow (while Meg is at work) to go on the hunt for the real French macaron. Seeing as I’ve never tasted one before, I don’t know exactly what a real one is supposed to taste like. I’ve had two attempts at making them and failed both times..

I’ve got an ongoing list of Macaron stops in NYC – so I hope you’re ready, Ryan. Love you hubbs.

Anyone out there in the blogosphere reading this have suggestions of places to go?
