July has been pretty hectic over here–a lot of traveling, work and what’s that? Barbecuing? YES. A lot of that. We took the plunge on our first charcoal grill the week before the 4th of July and set about trying to master how to do this business.

I’ve been in MIA lately on the blog front due to a things like going to Hawaii, work, NBA Playoffs, more work, and then let’s just be honest: Instagram is totally the new blog/Facebook/Twitter/whatever, right?
