Friday Favorites

I rarely share photos of myself anywhere.  I’m not good at taking photos of myself, because, well, it’s hard.  And I usually veto any photos of myself for so many reasons.  (I should stop doing that because I am going to have no photos of myself.)  SO!  Recently I needed a headshot, and so I had Dan take some photos of me  in his photo studio he has for shooting moped parts.  I squeezed in between moped seats and handle bars in order to say cheese a few times.  I instantly get awkward and goofy.  I smile a lot in my life, but smiling looking at a camera feels so strange.  I thought I’d share some outtakes from that adventure.  Most of the photos look like these weird ones, I did get a few worthy of sharing professionally though.  So that’s good.

And onto just a few Friday favorites!

I have been so excited to see the Herriott Grace film.  There was a little teaser trailer last week, and the anticipation has been building.  I am going to get a rolling pin from them, and seeing him work on the lathe was pretty magical.  My friend and I watched it together, and at one point we looked at each other and realized we were crying!  It’s beautiful, really.  And so completely inspiring. The craftsmanship of the products, the Canadian scenery, Lance Herriott’s life story – it’s all awe-inspiring.  But it’s definitely the father-daughter relationship and the way they are both so passionate about their roles in their amazing little shop that brought tears to my eyes.  Father’s Day is coming up, and I just wanted to get inthe car and find my dad and hug him.

I’m going to have a flower-crown-making party!

And, at that party we’ll make these mojitos!

My friend Rosanna has a lovely letterpress studio, The Iron Curtain Press, in Los Angeles.  I am so in love with everything she’s putting out into the world!  Such good stuff!  I’m such a sucker for letterpress!

And finally, a quote from this week: “WOW! I didn’t know you can toast almonds! Cool! … Well, now I know everything in the whole wide world.” – Maci, age 4

I’ve had such a busy week of preparing for the farmers’ market (you’ll be there, right?!), doing a fun photo shoot for a restaurant, and writing a grant for a teen summer writing workshop (fingers crossed!).  I hope your weekend promises to be wonderful!  I am going to be SO BUSY today baking, baking, baking!  So excited to share photos of our Whisk Bakeshop adventures on Monday!

Happy weekend!
