It was August and the height of the Perseid Meteor shower. Since both my father and I were up late, we walked down the high school sport field and watched the meteors. We talked about the shower itself, life and everything between.

My best summer was in the year of 2008. My husband, best friends, and I packed up the car and left San Antonio to visit the Grand Canyon. We stopped over a couple days in Las Cruces, NM. Camped out a a national park close to Las Cruces and hiked up the Organ Mountains to a site where an old hotel used to be. Then, we left to go on to Flagstaff, where we planned to stay. Flagstaff was SO beautiful and the sites were great. It was such and inviting city nestled in the mountains. Seeing the Grand Canyon was like looking at a painting. The image was surreal. It really felt like it was neverending going into the horizon. Seeing the sites and being with great company made it one of the best summers of my life. I can't wait to take another long trip with all of us together.

My most memorable summer was a few years ago and it was my first trip to Italy. In addition to the beauty and culture, it was a food explosion for me. From the tapas like dishes in Venice, to the wonderfully Mediterranean simple and flavorful dishes of the Almafi Coast, to the spicy excitement of the Calabria/Sicilian region and to the delectable choices of gelato in Rome. I just didn't want this trip to end!

September 1st, 2010 at 5:49 pm I grew up in Manhattan and that, as you might imagine, is a very different world from how most grew up – including my mother. My mother grew up in Orange Texas, near Beaumont TX about as far from NYC as one could get. Each summer many of my friends from school would go on vacations to europe, go to crazy camps – tennis camp, horseback riding camp, etc. Each summer, my parents sent me to Hemphill, TX, where my grandparents lived from when I was 7 to 14. I would spend the bulk of my summer seeing a totally different way of life from my school year life. My days were filled with visiting the neighbors’ kids for extended outdoor time, swims in the lakes, learning to grow tomatoes, build dollhouses, play cards and make potholders. But really learning that happiness was more about family, creativity and simplicity. My friends there were just as happy with their hand-me-down toys as my super-spoiled friends in NY who had the latest of everything. It was in Texas that I learned to drive, to swim, to be a child and have fun. My grandfather was the cook and would make the most beautiful meals from ingredients from his own garden or his neighbors – and this was b/f organic and local were “hot.” To him, it was just the way you lived. He made me promise that anything he put in front of me, I would try, no matter how it looked. And 20+ years later, I still hold to that. My Nana and Papa are sadly long gone, but the lessons, fun, tastes and just joy of summers in Hemphill Texas remain. I just hope I can impart that same kind of love on my children and grandchildren (when I have them). yours, Alexandra

Hands down...has to be the summer of learning to make fresh peach ice cream. NOTHING better...each one of us got to take a turn on the hand crank to help. Seemed as if it took hours and hours. Helping ice the bucket...crank...crank...Hot summer in the San Joaquin Valley. Family around you. Off to go take a dip in the creek. Back to check out the barrel and ask one more time..."Is it ice cream yet"...And finally all of the hard work pays off...Fresh from the tree peach ice cream...

Don’t let the bed bugs bite, that had been an old timer expression from days past, however right now it’s real again why?
