{ Donut -- Saturn -- Peaches }

Some call it a Donut Peach. Others call it a Saturn Peach.
I call it my favorite peach.
 Crisp like a bosc pear, sweet like candy,
and less fuzzy than it's other peachy cousins. Especially good with spanish manchego cheese drizzled with local tupelo honey.
Sadly, these peaches have a short season.
 Until next summer.

Sealed with a Kiss, Kirsten

{ This Moment }

 {This Moment} ---. A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savour and remember.  

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Inspired by  SouleMama  

Sealed with a Kiss, Kirsten

{ "Little Havana" Ybor City }

We drove 3 hours southwest to enjoy a day in Tampa. Or more specifically, Ybor City, aka Little Havana. We walked the old historic streets and enjoyed the wonderful woodsy scent of cigars coming from the local cigar factories and cigar shoppes established by Cuban settlers. Other street corners greeted us with the scent of coffee beans being brewed in the various coffee houses. When our tummies growled, we satisfied the hunger with plantain crusted Mahi Mahi and quenched our thirst with a pitcher of Cuban mojitos at the original Columbia Restaurant. 
It was a really nice day in which my husband summed up by saying, "I feel most like myself in places like this."

Sealed with a Kiss, Kirsten
