Some of my favorite things: jewelry, tomatoes, flowers

From top to bottom: jewelry I made for my mom while in Seattle (her design, my labor), my parents' tomatoes (LOVE) and flowers.

Back from Denver

I'm back from Denver. Had an amazing time.

I can't believe how long it's been since I've updated this blog. So here are some of the things that happened during the trip (just in case some of you will ask for suggestions)

late lunch/early dinner at WaterCourse
Salsa at Opal

Breakfast at Sam's No 3
Civic Center
Blue Bear
Denver museum of art (military gets in for free!)
Dinner at Rioja: AMAZING
Salsa at La Rumba

Breakfast at Pete's Kitchen
Farmers' market
Botanical garden
Tattered Cover Book Store
Dinner at Sushi Sasa

airport, 6 hours in Kansas City, home sweet home

When I came back, I got an email from Snapfish saying my account will be deleted unless I order something within 7 days. So I decided to order the 3 prints below and hang them in my bathroom. The photos are from the Botanical Garden.

Scenes around Capitol Hill

This past weekend I served as a photographer for the Eat Write Retreat. I will be posting about the food blogging conference on Mango & Tomato, but wanted to share with you some photographs I snapped around Capitol Hill while touring the area with the DC Food Tours and sampling amazing food.

Perhaps this last photograph was a sign: have courage, do things that slightly scare you and move forward!

Peonies & a new orchid

Know what I believe in? Buying myself flowers! This goes along with cooking for myself and surrounding myself with people and things that make me happy. There is no need to wait for a man to give you flowers!

Here are a few of the peonies I bought and my brand new orchid.

Basil & Ranunculus from Penn Quarter Farmers Market

LOVE flowers. This past Thursday I picked up some gorgeous ranunculus at the Penn Quarter Farmers Market (and a min basil plant).

This was a minor casualty: somehow I managed to snap off this flower once I got home :(
