Sweet mail from Sasha — the highlight of my week! I love that girl so much (can you tell?!), it’s hard for me to be away from her for so long. I unpacked two jars of her epic preserves (strawberry + chamomile, plum + cardamom!), and one of her hand-sewn eyes, stuffed with hops, lavender and chamomile. Such a beautiful object, I know I’ll keep it forever. The jam however, forget it. I cracked open the strawberry jam the next morning with Adam, and we downed a third of the jar. We ate huge spoonfuls of its delicious nectar, spread on toasted kamut bread with hazelnut butter. So it’s like, she’s not here, true, but parts of her are here, also, somehow. That’s enough. For now!
Thank you thank you thank you Sasha, for your sweet generosity and thoughtfulness!
Lunch from earlier in the week – never see these many colors this time of year in Ithaca! Sliced mango, haricot verts braised in white wine and red onions; roasted chicken (on our BBQ!); red leaf lettuce with blood oranges, manchego and roasted beets in a beet-lemon vinaigrette. The beets were perfect: tender and sweet and full.
I don’t normally post celebrity photos, but this sweet couple shot from the Golden Globes melted my cold, cold heart. PAAAACEY!
in a floaty mood this morning — feeling quite inspired by all things blush, light and sweet… in particular this stunning woman in baby soft pink.
also weirdly inspired by the effortless and melancholy binding of this video to this song. stunning.
