There has to be a word for the time you write a thousand-word blog post about how stressed out you are in order to alleviate that stress and then WordPress loses it, causing even more stress on a day when the stress piles are already high and mighty. Because my head feels like it might explode at any minute in a fiery WordPress rage, I’m just going to post some photos that make me very happy instead. Here goes.
Here is my new favorite cake, a Turkish one I made for the Thanksgiving wedding of two fabulous ladies. Many thanks to Traca for the kitchen assistance. Decorated with tiny orchids and a little banner I made that says ‘Wedding Congratulations’ in Turkish. Serve with fresh whipped cream. The flavors are both simple and complex; it tastes like exotic happiness.
So this exists. Taken on Capitol Hill because awesome, that’s why.
It was fun having a toy parade in honor of Justin’s 32nd year on Planet Earth. I wish I could have thrown him a Macy’s Day Parade, but this was more affordable.
I love the pink deviled eggs at Bitterroot in Ballard. I actually love a lot of things – food and drink things – at Bitterroot in Ballard. Please go and keep them in business, but get out the way when I arrive. There is pork to be had.
We’ve been having lovely nights out with friends for a welcome distraction from the wedding planning. This evening surrounded Pike Place Market; we went with B & E to Seatown to see my brother (the food was delicious!), then headed to RGB, and finished off at The Virginia Inn. Seattle nights out = happy funtimes!
Last but never least: the cheese. As you can see, it stands alone but not totally alone. This was taken at my friend KW’s place while she designed our Save the Dates (they were awesome!). So thankful to all the friends who have lent and offered their time, resources, talents, and ears to our winter wedding woopdedoo. Also, I love my phone camera. It takes pretty good photos.
I hope my lost post (the stress-y one) just appears someday, like horrible internet magic. If it doesn’t, here’s what you missed: we are le tired.
