Autumn in Seattle

Yellow Taxi

Orange Taxi

Post election day.  What a ride!  A nice time to reflect on the current season.  Grateful for having the freedom to use my voice...

One of my best girlfriends and I met for an autumn afternoon in downtown Seattle last Sunday.  It was a mild Pacific Northwest day, and a perfect time for being out on the town.  I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my senses captured...

Sight: Golden trees and floating leaves dancing under moody skies along Fifth Avenue.
Smell: The potency of vanilla and fruit in the lip balms and cheek tints that we played with at Sephora.  Girl time can be so fun.
Sound: Although we were not in New York City, I still had Ella Fitzgerald's and Louie Armstrong's duet of Autumn in New York playing in my head as I watched the yellow taxi pass by.
Taste: Piping hot portobello mushroom soup at Palomino's for lunch.
Touch: Intricate paper cutting at Anthropologie during their holiday display workshop.  I don't think I have the patience or talent for paper crafting, but it was still an interesting experience.

During this beautiful and hopeful season, what are you grateful for?

In this final Food + Foto assignment, we got to play with dessert!  My favorite.  It being chocolate was a bonus.  Chocolate Honey Mousse with Sel del Mer.  As I was making this over the stove top, I kept thinking that I must be doing it wrong because it was extremely easy to prepare!  The recipe was adapted from Bon Appétit via Epicurious.  You will definitely want to serve in small doses because it is very rich and decadent.  So delicious...
