Putting Tippi in the Ground

Tippi has been kind of clinging on, half browned and half green. We’ve tried to water her when we can, but she’s suffered a lot these past few months in her little pot. We decided that today would be the day we put her in the ground.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

I don’t know the last time I referenced it, but our wedding website (lizandfelix.com) is still online. We originally used it as a way to provide information to our guests, and it’s now where we store all the photos from the wedding itself. Consider this an official invitation to swing by and take a gander. Lots of fun links in the sidebar, too.

Brunch at Bongo Room

My meal, which was a pile of berry cheesecake flapjacks. Which were pretty much what you imagined they would be: “cheesecake in pancake form.” I was happy to not succomb to my normal habit of coming here, and then ordering something heartier like an omelette.

Date Night: Drinks at The Aviary

My final drink: Edison Square (warm, pistachio, ancho, caramel, rye, cognac). The way this drink is brought out is really amazing. It’s bottled up, and then when the server opens the top up… smoke just billows out everywhere. Pretty much everyone else in our immediate area stopped what they were doing and watched.

Garden Box Explosion, Box 2

What’s crazy is that for the last four or five days, we’ve been able to feed the rabbits 100% with things from the garden boxes (and from a few herbs planted along the fence). They’re getting a bit less that they used to get, but the quality is definitely much higher.
