Hitting up antique malls and old stand-by's. Pinching pennies and daydreaming. Clearing out the attic and hearing all the old stories again . . . Just a few of the ways I've been passing the time!

A drive around eastern North Carolina fills my heart with love for tobacco barns, front porches and visions of a simpler time. And though I've started to get ancy about what comes next (and when, when?!), a look around puts me right at ease - if only for that moment. Sticky handfuls of tobacco flowers are the icing on the cake.

Since I got home one thing I've been doing a lot of is eating. It's a big part of life down South and comfort food is definitely one of the things I always missed while I was away - country food just wasn't on the menu in London. I've been sampling lots of cakes, country restaurants and most beloved of all, nothing beats my Mama's cookin'.
