Happy Thanksgiving!

i hope you’re having a wonderful holiday weekend!

we’re in Rhode Island for the weekend and the weather is just stunning.  we are going to walk down to the beach soon to smell some salty air and watch the waves crash on the rocks…  and we wont even need coats!

every year my mother and i cook Thanksgiving dinner for my whole family.  Adam helps by chopping and prepping, my father makes a cheesecake and everyone else shows up with some sort of appetizer and healthy appetites!

Happy Thanksgiving! I Love You Nonetheless

Happy Thanksgiving! I Love You Nonethelesscarrot soup with sweet pea cream, served in my great grandmothers china.

we only use the Meito gold encrusted china a few times a year, and i just adore it when we do.  i love to think about all the special meals that have been served on these dishes, how many family members and friends that have used these over the last 80+ years…

Happy Thanksgiving! I Love You Nonetheless“the” meal

turkey, cranberry, mashed potatoes, yams and butternut squash, stuffing, string beans and braised brussel sprouts with bacon and a maple syrup glaze

pumpkin spice cheesecake — the perfect balance of creamy goodness, fall flavors and just the perfect amount of sweet

tis the season

i was listening to too beautiful to live and luke was talking about sufjan stevens’ christmas album.. i’m not into most chrispy music, but i thought this was sweet with its nostaligic animation style and sufjan’s lovely voice which is so unusual for a christmas song..

so i thought i would make a christmas list… haha i dont really care if i get anything.. a lot of what i’m giving to other people is stuff i’ve made which i think is so much more personal… but i have really enjoyed creating gift lists (take a look at this one i did for the frisky!) so i thought what the hej, it is the season.

1. Two tickets to The Book of Mormon

2. Macaroons — i’ve been obsessed with them for over a year now and i’ve still never had one

3. Long leather gloves — warm and elegant and something i’d never buy myself

4. The Jeffery Campbell Lita shoe in beige burgundy fabric — so weird/glam current obsession

5. The Canon PowerShot SD940IS 12.1 Mega Pixel digital camera with wide angle lens — sure i’ve got my wonderful Canon T1I, but sometimes a quick point and shoot is all you need/want

6. We went to Traif recently (a phenomenal resto in Williamsburg) and they had truffle salt rimed drinks. i would put this on everything. amaze.

Praise the Lourdes

on our way to Spain we stopped in Lourdes to visit the caves and see what all the fuss was about.   religious paraphernalia as far as the eye can see.  it was incredibly surreal…

p.s.  i KNOW ive been gone too long, i have sooo much to tell you about!  one more day in the UK – going to Brick Lane today, one of my FAVE parts of London, going to do a little shopping at a few local stores that i LOVE….  i have some AMAZING photos of France – the fashion, the country side, the Tour; St Sebastian Spain – one of the most exquisite sunsets ive ever seen, super fun street fashion and some phenomenal food; and then MORE LONDON STREET FASHION to share with you!!!  stay tuned
