holy bologna!

Ok. So. if you go back to a post i made in august.... -dreams are made of these-.... and if you look at the last photo... The glass fronted house with the porch over the water is where we spent last weekend, or rather, two weekends ago? I had no idea i had been coveting this aesthetic before traveling to this place. And let me tell you, it was just as magical of a weekend as the picture would leave you to believe you would have there.

Our two bosom buddies got hitched on the lawn and we were afforded the privileged of staying in the house. our room was beautiful, sparse, and perfect. there are sparkling, gorgeous, love exuding photos from that weekend, and a few priceless videos, which happen to be on h's phone and not in my possession.

But, you can close your eyes and imagine.
GASP! a picture of us!

I have been working on yummy things. The first is an esspresso balsamic fig preserve. The second is a bottling of numerous infused liquors. Yum. Although i am not a big drinker, the process and the magic that happens is so fun. Not to mention they are really fun to show off in cocktails!

I made a mint strawberry vodka. A thyme gin, a lemon verbena and coriander gin. A lemon basil vodka and two jalapeno tequilas. One with roasted jalapenos the other with lime. All lightly sweetened.

garden time

Today has been a relaxing half garden work half infusing alcohol kindda day. Which is my favorite kind for sure.


dreams come from these

these are what i day dream about.


Phew its been awhile

Ok. dear blog. aka self.... cause there is no good reason anyone should be following my blog at this pint cause its so boring!

However! Exciting things have been happening.
1: i went gluten free
2: im happy
3: i've been focusing on health and nutrition and mental well being.

.... and this has been quite a journey.
So lets start with item number one. Gluten free.
that is a super scarey two word combo.
That means no wheat no nothin.... i mean, basicly wheat is in everything and although i am pretty sure i am wheat intolerant and not completely gluten intolerant, i have decided to do gluten free as it is almost easier.
I am however, trying not to make this stressful. The whole point of cutting nasty things from my diet is so that i can focus on being happy and nourished and less stressed, so if here or there the tiniest little bit squeeks through the cracks, i am not sweating it. I am not allergic.... it just does mean things to my digestion and mood and general mental health.

Speaking of which... a slight detour into things most people wouldnt know... cutting gluten has been such a hormonal change for me, that i skipped my period for a whole month..... so from febaruary to april.... nothin!

So crazy.... and of course the morning i wake up to being a woman again... there is literally the biggest fullest moon i have ever seen hovering over the city, as big as many buildings put together.

It's been a crazy ride.

2: self explanatory. My mood has been stable (for the most part) i am content, happy, supported, and surrounded by love. could it be better? that is not something i even consider!

...to be continued.... the temperature in the house is dropping... and therefore the logical thing to do is to make a coffee beverage to warm me up!



i stole this from the tumblr androgyny & lace. this. is not only a beautiful image, but beautiful style and her look. ooOooo. is this how i would have looked if i lived in the 50's? i sure hope so.
