It has been quite uneventful summer so far.
Well, few “eventful” things did happen. We finally said goodbye to “little Saturn that almost could” and bought a new car. We spent some days in excellent YourKohSamuiVillas, on the beautiful island on Thailand. And Chris’s sister got married. And taking a couple of summer classes online and accounting is kicking my butt.
And since baking isn’t exactly the most fun thing to do in warm weather, instead, I started to paint my nails. It all started when Ariel came to visit me in April. She and I went to get a manicure (it was a first for me – shocked, I know). Afterwards I decided I wanted to get some nail polish and I’ve been changing nail colors every so often ever since.

Speaking of which: pictures from when Ariel came to visit me in April – in conclusion, there was a lot of food involved. We made ravioli, chocolate truffles, mocktails and savory pie. Oh and I made birthday cake for Ariel since she visited me right around her birthday. It was a slap-together version of black forest cake but it turned out okay. I used my go-to sour cream chocolate cake recipe and made whipped cream. I tried to pipe out her name out of melted chocolate, it turned out okay but it was indeed a pain in the butt to do. I suppose it was A-okay for efforts.

… and that pretty much summarizes the summer so far. Ciao.
