Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wow. As I sit and write this post it dawned on me that I hadn’t done this in a while. The truth is it’s been crazy crazy here for some time; I got married and I moved all in the same week. Needless to say that I lived in chaos for the better part of the last three months. At the beginning we were nor here or there; we were sleeping in one place but all our things were somewhere else, and then it became the box party.
For a while there getting a hold of my kitchen tools, or being able to photograph anything was really something I could only dream of.

With the excuse that we are moving to a new apartment soon we had a get together with friends at home this past weekend. We wanted to say goodbye to our place the best way we knew how: surrounded by the people we love, having fun and eating good stuff. Everybody that had once seen the view from our window deserved to bid it farewell.
