The power of a good meal and dear friends

For a few reasons, I took a break from photography and blogging this summer (…and autumn… and now we’re approaching the end of the year… yikes!). But one of the instances that brought back my love for photography was this get-together with 2 dear friends, Chrystine and Nicole. Chrystine hosted us at her house, and it could not have been more perfect.

We started off with appetizers…

…and some of the best tea I’ve ever had (ginseng oolong, I think?). It left you with a sweet taste in the back of your throat, almost like honey.

Then we moved on to the main course, cooked by Chrystine herself:

the best steak salad ever with butter-and-garlic roasted mushrooms and butter lettuce, with a side of potatoes au gratin with cheese and bacon (sadly not photographed because I instantly started eating it).

And even though we were stuffed, we still had room for coffee and chocolate.

But even topping that was the company and conversation. (~Thank you, N & C, for the lovely day!)

  1. I have missed you! But I understand the need to take a break whenever necessary. This sounds like it was one of those wonderfully invigorating gatherings where you leave bouncing with love and inspiration. I love those.

  2. Yummm. That shot of the tea being poured is so cozy and lovely! Glad you’re back to it, I feel you on taking a break. I didn’t step away completely, but I definitely backed off quite a bit for a bunch of reasons and am looking forward to shooting more for myself.
