You are truly an incredible woman. My appreciation for you grows more and more every day. There is nothing  like your home-cooked meals, your hugs, your smile, your passion for life, your heart of gold. You, are WONDER-FULL!

"Craft night 4 ever"

food for thought.

I was cooking bean soup tonight and I thought to myself "ohhh, pretty colors!". Then I realized that there were so many interesting things to take pictures of in my kitchen. Food is pretty! I was bored at the moment. But the more I took pictures, the more I was intrigued with the shape and texture of the different foods. Then I wasn't so bored after all!

"One person can make beauty happen anywhere, or anytime."

.:.This book is simply wonderful. I will be quoting from this book on facebook over the next few days- it shakes up the modern perception of beauty.:.

One of my dearest friends came to visit meeeee!!!! Mollie Booth was my special guest for the weekend- look at what we did!..
She showed me this simple, yet delish recipe for a dip.
1. Cut tomato, basil, and mozzarella cheese in a cooking dish.
2. Set oven at 350 and cook for 15 minutes.
3. enjoy with bagel crisp! (and wine!)

This was after we climbed at the rock wall climbing center, so of course we were ready for some munchies. We were all cozy once we settled in and that's when she pulled out her style magazines. For those of you who do not know Mollie, she is a stylist and LOVES what she does. For hours we talked girly talk about fashion, art, humor, movies, love, and the beauty of life. 

She bought this brilliant eye shadow and nude lipstick at Sephora-  I HAD to try it on!

We decided to dress up the next day and go to the coffee house and study...


We found ourselves at The House in Hillcrest where we enjoyed hours chatting, and a bit of tasty food.

I caught her being all precious and melancholy.

That afternoon several of my Caracalla friends had a very inspirational business meeting at Ella's house. Inspirational business meeting? Is there such a thing? YES! ...but anyways, I had to take a picture of Mollie sitting on Ella's lovely little couch. 

Marvelous weekend with marvelous people. 
Oh, and I just ended the weekend with two lovely friends, Heather and Lakota! We're working on a photo shoot for my hair portfolio. I cannot wait to post more about that! Pictures coming soon:)
