4th of July Festivities

July 7, 2011 Adventure

  How did you spend the 4th of July? We lazed on porches. (Southerners love their porches.)   Listened to some bluegrass.    Took a stroll down main street.   Ate our fill of red, white, and blue.      And began shopping for one of these for next year. So sparkly. Hope you all had [...]

Sleepy in Saluda

July 5, 2011 Adventure

  This week I’m spending time with my family in a sleepy town called Saluda. There’s not a whole lot to do here and that’s just fine with me.   Our mornings are filled with long walks around town, finding something curious and new every day. Taking in the fresh mountain air and the glorious, [...]

An Afternoon in Middleburg, VA and The Red Fox Inn

June 1, 2011 Adventure

A few weeks ago, my fiancé and I took an afternoon drive down to Middleburg, VA.  Middleburg is a friendly, quaint tourist town with a little something for everyone. Good eats, beautiful scenery, shops brimming with knick knacks, horse country, and oodles of southern charm. Our main objective was to dine at the Red Fox [...]

Farm Living

May 1, 2011 Adventure

My fiancé and I have been enjoying yet another peaceful weekend at the family farm. This time hasn’t been the most restful as we’ve had a lot of wedding details to go over, but it has been a good time nonetheless. Somehow, no matter how busy we get, we manage to find time to walk [...]

Weekend At The Farm

February 20, 2011 Adventure

I’ve blogged occasionally about spending time at my fiancé’s family farm in North Carolina. It’s a place we go often, a quiet weekend respite from the big city bustle.  I’ve shared a few pictures below. The chix.  Tiger Buddy The sheep. Baby lambs. Baaah. The grounds.       My sweetie, hiking in a collared shirt. He’s [...]

KISF is back!

November 19, 2010 Adventure

It’s depressing to think about, but unfortunately, KISF is no longer on vacation, living it up. The trip across the pond was a wonderful adventure that I won’t soon forget. Which of course is why I’m super sad to be back. Then again, it’s nice to be home. Let’s talk about the food. London was [...]

Austin Food Highlights

October 2, 2010 Adventure

I’ve been debating posting these pictures for awhile now. They didn’t turn out as nicely as I had hoped and I hate to make you suffer through a string of shoddy photos (I know I hate looking at bad photography on other blogs), but the food in Austin is too amazing to go unmentioned and, [...]

Road Food Veggie Style

August 26, 2010 Adventure

Last weekend, my boyfriend and I drove down to the family farm. I love a good road trip, but I hate the food options. Every exit sign is a veritable cornucopia of fast food chain restaurants- Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Arby’s, Chick fil A, etc. Don’t even get me started on the so-called “food” products found in [...]

So, I’m officially back in Washington, D.C. I’ve been here only two days and am already missing China- good food and great people! As a final farewell, I am posting some mouth watering shots that didn’t make it into my prior posts. Enjoy!

Chinese Cafeteria Food

July 26, 2010 Adventure

A few days ago, a friend took me on a tour of Beijing’s top school Peking University. Along the way, we stopped for lunch at the cafeteria. It was quite a different scene from what you’d expect to find at a typical American universtiy. Instead of counters offering fast food-burgers, tacos, and pizza- students were [...]
