~rainbow mondays~ pink is in

pink: a little shy on red this time of year, but i will supplement with some pink! took rich out on a sunshine-filled beach date after my farmer’s market job on saturday. lucky for me, it was low tide, and i got to snap some tidepool pictures, including bright pink sea anemones. . . . → Read More: ~rainbow mondays~ pink is in

simmering a rew part 1 ~ soup starter

sifting through post drafts, i decided to simmer a bunch of separate ingredients in one soup pot, hoping they will complement one anothers’ flavors. one is too tangy alone, one is much too sappy, and still another one has an overpowering kick. it’ll either turn into a pleasingly balanced, wholesome chowder of words, or it . . . → Read More: simmering a rew part 1 ~ soup starter
