The tales of a florist, stylist, and photographer keepin' it simple in San Francisco, California. This is the home to my stories, inspirations, photography & (when I get really lucky) travels.

I love me a Market Day. 
I love Saturday mornings in Santa Cruz—especially when it’s a sunny and warm January day(whaaaaat?)—because it means I can ride my bike to the farmer’s market…in a dress, and be called the “vegetable paparazzi”.  Today I bought some fresh goodies for the week: blood oranges, fresh dates, dino kale for homemade kale chips, fresh lettuce and radicchio for a good salad, and some butternut squash I’m going to put to good use for a pie.

I’ll admit: I’ve got many a Valentine today.  Coffee included in this said list. 

My good friend was able to hook me up with some local coffee yesterday.  And sweet mother of pearl, I opened the container today and I probably could have skipped the French-Pressing part of the preparation and gone straight for consumption because it smelt so wonderful.

Joe and I decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day yesterday because this week is extremely busy for the both of us.  So I picked up a few things and headed straight for his house, where I would begin preparing a surprise dinner for him (If you’re wondering, this included Gluten-Free Fettuccine Alfredo, Balsalmic Roasted Parsnips and Carrots, and some homemade Gluten-Free Donuts for dessert).  It was around 8:45pm when I’d finished cooking, with 1/3 of a bottle of wine consumed,  and still no sign of the guy.  Turns out, he’d been waiting to surprise me at my house for about a half an hour.  Silly us.  Anyhow, we sorted this out— fettuccine slightly cold—but still very delicious. 

Hoping everybody is having a wonderful day.
