So sorry for the herb hiatus. She's back-Basil, that is. Since you last saw her (about 6 hours ago via this blog) she has really begun to flourish. Six hours of sunlight per day and lots of water, that's it. I've really come to enjoy taking care of our back garden, but especially the herbs (if I haven't mentioned that already). Watching them grow from small seedlings to full plants has been so fun! And even more fun to cook with them for other people. Tonight, I took Basil to a whole new level-pesto. We now have a small jar of it in our fridge and next time I'll go easier on the garlic-whoops. Coming soon...a blog post on my "herb inspired" pinterest boards.
Sarah and I had a garden party. We have a small garden and an alley perfect for cornhole and wanted to have people over, despite the fact that it's hot as heck. We had pie and lemonade and other cold drinks and had a lovely time...before the storm rolled in. So for those who were thinking, "if i have to look at that picture of Lindsey's basil, one more time..." well, here you go. Pictures, courtesy of my Wedding Photographer roommate, Sarah :).

After playing at the park with the little girls, Emily and I took a mini-bus to the water, found Ev Yemekleri (homecooked food) and did some shopping.

I savored every moment of this day with Little Miss M and these dear friends. M and I even stayed for Baked Ziti and dancing to the Nacho Libre soundtrack :).
Little Miss M and I had a special day together while her parents were out doing touristy things with Mark and Katie. We played with some other friends, went to the park, and then picked up the youngest ones from school with their mom.

My traveling buddies and dear friends.
On our first morning, Mark and Katie took us to a restaurant with a great view of the city and a delicious breakfast. After returning to their apartment and resting for the afternoon, they had a friend come over and cook an authentic meal for us. It was probably our best meal of the week!
Little Miss M waiting to board her first flight over the Atlantic with her juice (water) and jammies. We were actually all in our jammies, with the exception of her father.
