point lobos

Picking it back up in 2010! We went to Point Lobos, at the northern end of Big Sur for new years and then had a delicious, and un-photographed, early meal (with William in tow) at the Big Sur Bakery. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, pizza was wonderful!

small dose of winter

Belated images from my trip back to Michigan over Thanksgiving. I miss winter and the less colorful, more textural landscapes it brings.

dos corazons (and more autumnal beauty)

It was a busy weekend, full of job applications for me and Andres, very draining I'm afraid. We did get to take a short walk through Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto, though. If I could re-do my wedding with only 50 guests I'd consider having it here--I love the rows of labeled plants and the intimate courtyard. As you can see, despite the falling leaves the dahlias are still going strong.

perfect fall breakfast

It's persimmon season! I didn't really know about this fruit until recently, long after admiring the mysterious orange orbs dangling from a tree in a neighbor's yard after it lost its leaves. It wasn't until I started buying most of my produce at the farmer's market last year that I really came to appreciate the persimmon, it has a pronounced sweetness and a very mild flavor, so it can complement many other foods. We got our first three of the season last Sunday and they've been ripening all week. I tried one yesterday for breakfast and was so pleased with the result that I decided to repeat the meal today and to document the deliciousness. Persimmon mush + yogurt (full fat, please) + pecans + flax meal = divine yum! (a cup of hot coffee is a nice addition).

watch me unravel

I discovered that one of my favorite sweaters needs some attention. Thought that the light on corduroy looked quite pretty as well and decided to document the day's outfit, basic black.

I just learned about this blog the other day, and it's been a good exercise for me to document daily life--also helps me get my day started in a pleasant way!

early, austere

I got to work early today and had to wait for some scripts to run, so I decided to take some photos. I love the low morning light on those bench/cubes, so stark! They'd be good for me to draw to practice perspective and shading.

weekend walks

Saturday we went for a walk around the reservoir by Highway 92. Gorgeous late-afternoon light on some golden California flora. Sunday afternoon we walked downtown for some yogurt and enjoyed some signs that fall is indeed here. I guess the maple trees know the days are getting shorter, even if it's still eighty-degrees out! I love the color!
