just one pic! i caved!

:: ici ::

this the dark...

i brushed!

i made a fresh face in the mirror,

smiling...and thinking...

...that four hour dinner last night with 

my girlies was the best!!

we laughed away every calorie!

on with my old comfy french terry sweats and out the door! the drive thru!

how could i have waited so long?

it was so worth it!

i'm home again...just popping in to 

remind you that it's

 "that time!"

and how very yummy, warm and welcoming "that time" is

once again!

here's to sips of simple pleasures!

up early, early, there's more Autumn in pink...random kale...

{mmmmmm....morning friends!
Mr D had to be to work early.
up at three...a shut down before dawn...a new server by sunrise!
i'm cozy under the quilt,
on the sofa with The Chocolate Gousse and my laptop,
the publish... then snuggle and snooze.}




when the hydrangeas fade...

the kale comes to play.

it's fresh and crisp...

... just like the Pacific Northwest Autumn air.

at first glance...i thought this was an image of

"those flower pens"!

pretty pink centers... seeds from White!

meet Victoria!

Ms D will be headed to Longbeach
  for the weekend. i am making
pink grapefruit and kale salad Friday night! 
...recipe here

i reserved a copy for my bedside bibliothèque!

it's out on October 15th...

i need to read my self to sleep while

Mr D is away a couple of weekends in the near future. 

while he's away, i'm thinking of treating myself to a simple

pair of amimal print flats, although a classic

leopard print blouse could be fun too! 

by the way, NFL!...thanks for putting PINK on the field!

have a beautiful week!
