My Honda, Forever Memorialized

My reliable 1998 Honda Accord is gone but she will forever live on this blog. Sold her through Craigslist in preparation for buying a new car in Atlanta. Fare thee well, old friend, fare thee well!

Seize the Day!

Three Generations, Mom, Amy and Grandma Sarah

On Mother's Day I ventured home to Charlotte and had a lovely dinner with my mom, stepdad, Grandma Sarah and Aunt Anne (step-grandmother). We went to Carpe Diem in Charlotte. I had a wonderful dish of BBQ Shrimp and polenta and my mom's pan seared coriander and orange rubbed duck breast was to die for. Once we got Aunt Anne her crabcake all was good with the world and we enjoyed a sumptuous meal.

Duck Breast - mom's favorite!

Our Last Mexican Fiesta as Law Students

Amy, Ryan and Nathalie: Forever a Trio

As usual, some friends and I headed to have our traditional post-finals Mexican meal. First we had drinks at Tequila Rose and then we went over to my favorite spot, South of the Border, for dinner. The photo says it all... Tacos Carne Asada with extra hot sauce. I'm sure going to miss these guys... and I don't just mean the tacos.

Blue Talon Birthday

Katie - the birthday girl!

The Katies, Will and I had a lovely dinner at the Blue Talon in celebration of one Katie's birthday. I had some tasty mussels and fries. The broth was nice and garlicky - wonderful for sopping the nice French bread they serve. This might be my last time here for awhile...

Les Moules Frites - that's mussels and fries for all of you
non-French speaking people.

The Queen, the Queen!!

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II - see the pink hat!?

Being in Williamsburg during the Jamestown Anniversary festivities has been a slight pain but I was happy that I got to witness THE QUEEN riding in a carriage down the famous Duke of Gloucester Street right after my Trusts and Estates exam.
