A Week in Photos: October 7th

October 14, 2013


My parents came to visit this past weekend so first thing on the list was to show them the Blue Ridge Parkway. I never get tired of this North Carolina beauty.


My mom brought me a ring of my grandmothers and a real pearl necklace of hers as well. Treasures.


Drew and I cooked them a feast celebrating my mom’s upcoming birthday and my dad’s recent retirement. We had West African Sweet Potato Peanut Soup; Spinach Salad with Feta, Sunflower Seeds & Miso Dressing; Fresh Bread & Brie; and Apple Cake for dessert. We need placemats.


We introduced them to boiled peanuts.


Our new little bonsai tree. We went to the NC Arboretum for the first time (gorgeous!) and there was a bonsai expo going on. There’s a lot to this world of bonsai, fingers crossed this thing stays alive.
