You may have noticed that I take an excessive amount of photos of autumn trees.
Today was no exception. How gorgeous is this?!
My girlfriends and I recently made a pact to try a new restaurant/have a girl’s night out twice a month. First on our list – Unum – a “neighborhood restaurant with American contemporary cuisine” in the heart of Georgetown. Conclusion: It’s 12 hours later and I’m still drooling/thinking about all of that deliciousness.
My personal favorite: Sesame crusted scallops with wasabi risotto with edamame, shiitake & tobiko, spiced shishito peppers, pickled vegetables & nori beurre blanc.
Other top rates:
Grilled quail with sauteed spinach with dates, pistachios & date demi-glace
Boneless shortrib pasta with tagliatelle, baby root vegetables & red-wine braising jus
Grilled hanger steak with roasted sunchokes, white & green asparagus, horseraddish & port sauces
Looks as if our dining pact is off to a scrumptious start!
After a full year (or possibly two?), I am back in the creative blog-writing game and it feels so good. As you may have read in my “About” section, I am a 22-year-old with a variety of girly – and I mean girly – interests.
Wine nights with the girls, finding that perfect new shade of lipstick, discovering a new heavenly cocktail (I love anything with ginger and mint involved) or snatching that last perfectly fringed knitted scarf off the display table of a little corner boutique, all fall under my list of feel-good things. So of course when I moved to Georgetown in Washington, D.C., I was beyond excited to be living in the middle of one of the cutest neighborhoods for post-grad life – if I do say so myself.
And now September has passed, October is flying by – Fall is officially here. What better time to move to a new city, explore new things and start a new blog. I think F. Scott Fitzgerald hit the nail on the head.
So loves, get ready for posts on food (and cocktails!), style, travel, home decor, beauty products and a little light reading on Coffee and Cobblestones. Beyond excited to be able to call myself a blogger once again! Oh, and Happy Hump Day!
