Agape: Through it all.

Always to and fro

Before I headed back to Ohio for Thanksgiving, a friend asked me what I was most looking forward to.

Jeweled Brown Sugar Cranberry Tart


I was told to bring whatever I wanted to Thanksgiving this year, so we brought two desserts...Pumpkin Cheesecake with Eggnog Caramel, and this Brown Sugar Cranberry Tart. In preliminary taste tests, this tart was the favorite, but I do have a tenuous relationship with Pumpkin. I know Thanksgiving is over, but there is still more than a month to scarf enjoy festive desserts. The cranberries are so pretty in the custard!

So... this is going on at right now.

I also look like I just rolled out of bed, but maybe that's the beachy look they were going for?

Maybe it was just a Hard Day's Night. Either way, some of these pictures could end up in my mom's photo album.

A Room with a View

I like taking walks at night because I like peeking into other people's lives. Lights are on: pockets of lives on display. I know.... it's creepy. Olden day Facebook, if you will. There's something mystifying about how we are all living simultaneously, completely oblivious of each other. I also like looking at other people's photo albums. Some think that's creepy too. Maybe you feel the same way. Either way, peeping or not, here are some pictures from this last weekend. Don't feel obligated to click through unless you're my mom.

Cornmeal-Crusted Trout with Warm Tomato Salsa

I know. Fish are a polarizing food. Whole fish are especially polarizing. We didn't eat a lot of fish growing up, although we asked for fish sticks as kids, which my mom didn't pretend to understand. Really? You want these? With Ketchup? Really?

As a poor college student, I definitely didn't eat fish. Too expensive. I was also too busy eating rice and salsa, which was about the extent of my culinary prowess.

However, I do like fish. David didn't grow up on fish either, so we're en-devouring on this journey together. How exactly to you scale a fish? How do you bone it? Why go to all this effort when you can roast a chicken in 45 minutes flat and not even have to look at the weird fish eye staring at you? 

Because, my precious: "The rock and pool, is nice and cool, so juicy sweet. Our only wish, to catch a fish, so juicy sweet."

Impossible To Know: Degrees of Separation

This is long overdue, y'all.

Impossible To Know by Kelly Condron from JakeVK on Vimeo.

So rewindin' back to July: I was asked by ma friend Jake to help with a music video he was plannin' on shooting for musician Kelly Condron.

I can't recall how I responded to him, but I remember thinking, "Umm... yeah!"

This is where six degrees of separation comes in. There are more connections in this video than I can keep track of, and that's what I find most awesome about this adventure.

Trembling Hands

This song.

Lots of love,
