DO YOU LIKE PIE?
the kitchen smells pretty amazing right now. i've decided to mix some fresh summer fruits from the market...a medley of sorts and turn the oven on, which is something i've been avoiding during these hot and humid days of summer. i love being in the kitchen and it felt good to be whipping up a new creation. just trying to get back to normal after a rough week which left me pretty raw and emotionally drained with the passing of a dear friend much much too soon. too tragic for words really...
on a much lighter note, i spent a lovely afternoon celebrating my mom's birthday last friday. being with my folks wrapped in a blanket of warm affection and joy always does me good and feeling blessed by such a happy occasion the fog seemed to lift a bit.
a few things worth mentioning:
CocoRosie is gearing up for september and october weddings and in the throws of updating the website. i am looking forward to fall flowers and what is better than nyc in the fall, nothing compares...well maybe tuscany! but still i am not prepared for summer to move on just yet. i treasure these long days and know that they are fleeting ever so quickly. the next season will be upon us before we know it and then there is, dare i say...winter. yikes!
i've also created an adjunct page to my current blog which will feature mostly visuals and quotes. this will allow for more inspiration to flow hopefully and not muck up my current page. you can find more loveliness if you mosey over to arosebud.tumblr.com. no, i really didn't need a new blog, my third, but who's counting...why not add more to an already full plate.
my shopgirl summer is also drawing to a close. i've met so many wonderful ladies and made some lovely new friends, as well as drowning in beautiful flowers week after week. what more can a girl ask for? well...don't ask? i will miss it all, especially the afternoon iced lattes and oh oh the chocolate cloud*.
enjoy the rest of the week y'all. tomorrow promises plenty of sunshine and blue skies.
i'll be at the beach soaking up those rays, winter far far from my thoughts...
*chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate
make this the most intense chocolate cookie ever.
from la to nyc, so lovely.

blueberry cobbler, my inspiration.
and like a fine wine, fall 2011.
