I made it to my home away from home and it feels so good to be back here. Damir is even cuter than I remember him being (maybe I was too busy to pay attention when he was home), and I'm filling up on all the delicious food that I can while I'm here, specially these beautiful tomatoes from Bosnia – there's nothing better.
Today we hung out at home, had a big breakfast, went for a drink (which is what people do here... they go to cafes and drink things and talk, and I'm always blown away by it), went to Fazila's garden, actually her two gardens, harvested like 50 pounds of squash, a whole basket of beans, potatoes, and carrots while wearing surgical gloves so we didn't get too dirty. We stole lettuce and cucumbers from her friends' garden and scored a perfect head of cabbage and a whole bag of onions from one of her friends working in her own garden. I've never seen such beautiful gardens in my life than in this country and they're everywhere!
When the time comes for us to get serious about gardening (and when we live in a place that we can work with a bit more), I'm going to have my mother in law come and coach me.
But the best part so far has got to be seeing these dimples once more. Lord, I have missed him.
