Hello to you all!
Thank you for the great discussion this week. It's pretty amazing to hear everyone share their voices, based on their own unique experiences and journeys. So thank you for that. Over the last few days, Danny and I have tried our best to respond to most of the questions and comments. You can see that the conversation got quite thorough (though there is always so much more to say.) And may we all be enriched as we continue along our truth seeking paths.
Here are a few Love Announcements :)
-Danny & I are moving on Tuesday! Yes! We are saying good bye to this teeny temporary apartment we've been staying in and we couldn't be happier about it. You guys, we're moving into an actual house!! (It's pictured below). This is nuts. Since we've been such urban dwellers, we have never lived in a house. I'm so excited to see what it will be like. It's not my dream house or anything. But I think for the moment it will be fun to experience. It has a little yard in the back for gardening, a side porch for outdoor dinners, a loft that we will use for yoga and meditation, a space for a large dining table (I have never had a table), a fireplace, an avocado tree and lime tree, and a rather large kitchen. In this picture it was in the process of getting painted. We'll be working over the next many months to get this place furnished. I might share a few pictures as we go along. We plan to have a few pieces of furniture made by carpenters and metal smiths. Fingers crossed that it will work out. We've never done anything like this before.
Red Pepper Tomato Soup. This is creamy, spicy, rich, flavorful and so ridiculously easy to make. We've made it twice as we've enjoyed it so much. It's also so tasty with the chopped celery on top. Don't skip that part!
Cookie Dough Bites: These are such tasty little things and they travel really well. I used raw honey instead of agave. And I used unsweetened, raw chocolate chopped up instead of chocolate chips. We could hardly even tell the chocolate was unsweetened! Once it's combined with the honey, it tastes amazing. And the cinnamon is one of my favorite parts.
-Melissa Hope visited Clam Lab, a ceramics studio I hadn't yet heard of in Brooklyn. What a treasured gift one of these hand made pieces would be (better yet, a little collection!) Next time I'm in Brooklyn I just might have to pay them a visit. (see more of Melissa's photos here.)
-Danny and I were highlighted on a very sweet blog that is all about READING. So cool, right? It's called Everyday Reading and you can see our current reads, our all time favs, our childhood favs, and books we didn't like. It was so fun to do that interview.
Sending out much love to everyone here. We're so thankful to have this space to get to know you all and to be connected through our experiences. Have a fun weekend!
