well, i think it’s safe to say that summer has unofficially began in florida. it’s been hot, humid and sticky all week long. temperatures in the 90’s. at least we’ve had some lovely afternoon thunderstorms, easily my favorite part of a florida summer. oh, did i mention that our air conditioning stopped working?

i have a penchant for combining chocolate and orange. i’m convinced they’re meant to be together. like star-crossed lovers. soulmates. you know, all that jazz.

lately, all i’ve been craving is blueberries. blueberry pie, blueberry muffins, blueberry smoothies, blueberry scones…just give me anything with a blueberry in it, and i’m a happy girl. funny thing is, i used to hate those cute little azure berries. hated them with a fiery, burning passion.
