Lunch at Ritorno Chelsea

Guess what?  I've been editing photos!!!  It's been ages.  I was starting to think the blog had run its course and fallen by the wayside.  But change is in the air.  The lead up to the 1 year anniversary to the day the gauntlet fell on my marriage sucked!  So bad.  It stirred up so much shit for me.  But then, lots of self-love (cliche? yes. necessary? definitely), reflection and wrestling with the past.  I also took a really good look at where I am a year later and determined where I needed to make some changes as I move forward.  I feel like I've made it past a very important milestone.  I feel lighter and less foggy.  I feel excited about the future, more in control of my life again.  I've also felt editing photos and maybe even blogging some.   These photos have been sitting in draft form for a year now.  Last year, lovely Fiona from London Unattached invited me to Ritorno in Chelsea to sample their Chelsea Flower Show cocktail and have lunch.  Here are some of the pics I took that day.

Oh, how I miss London.  Some days I just ache to be back, I fell so in love with that city.  How fortunate am I that the blog afforded me so many opportunities to get out and explore and to make amazing friends?  Such a blessing, I just can't let this blog go.  I'll just have to find a way to make it mine again here in Texas. 

Aren't these cocktails gorgeous with those fluttering butterflies?  Our meal was amazing.  I highly recommend this restaurant.  I definitely miss the food offerings in London!

Have you ever had burrata?  It's fresh Italian mozarella taken to a whole new level! The word burrata actually means buttered and it's rich and creamy.  That first bite will make your eyes roll back.

For dessert, we had these beautiful bowls of deconstructed decadence.  Cannoli and Tiramisu.  Now I'm craving some good Italian. 

If you are reading this, thanks so very much for sticking around!  I've missed you.  I've missed this.
