Friday Favorite: Blackberry Picking!

Some friends and I recently had the best Sunday Funday. One of those days where we had no specific plans, and kind of just went where the wind took us. Where did we end up? In the North Bay, picking blackberries from a wild patch. It was my first blackberry picking experience!

I love those kinds of days...where you never know where you're going to end up or what you're going to end up doing. Thanks to Sarah and Evan for the fun day (and to Tatiana and Shawn for the tip and directions!)

Cardamom for Bowman

I love this simple photo of a spice collection in a restaurant kitchen. In looking at it more closely, I noticed that one of the jars is labled "cardamom". Well, I can't hear the word "cardamom" without thinking about my friend Bowman. So on this day, his birthday, I'm posting this in his honor!

Happy Birthday Bowman!

It was the perfect ending to an absolutely amazing (and tasty) evening!

Friday Favorite: A Return to NYC

Eight years ago, I made my first visit to New York City. I met one of my closest friends, Matt, out there. We had an awesome NY weekend--filled with lots of amazing eats, fun nights out, shows on Broadway, and even a nap in Central Park.

And although I've been back many, MANY times, I've never gone back with my friend Matt. Well, this weekend, I am returning to NY. With Matt!

Here's a photo of us from 2002--in front of the theater on Broadway. I can't wait for our weekend...we already have so many things planned. We'll have to plan a return trip just to get them all done!

Friday Favorite: Watermelon!

Just in time for the Labor Day long weekend...some delicious watermelon!

Not sure what is going on with all the news about seedless watermelons (you'll notice that the watermelon in the above photo don't have seeds). But personally? Even without seeds, there's nothing like a cold and refreshing watermelon on a hot day. Seed or no seeds.
