sorry i kind of disappeared from this space for a little bit. it's that busy time of year again. i've been tweeting a bit more lately because it feels more manageable some days - mostly a collection of links i find + am appreciating. my jury was out on twitter for a long time, but there are definitely parts i like - especially small updates from far flung friends - i do not so much enjoy the people only trying to sell me things, though.
i took this picture yesterday on a long thanksgiving day walk with my family. i love how peaceful and still it feels. i hope you had a lovely day yesterday, if you were celebrating. i made this chocolate pie from smitten kitchen as a surprise for a southern uncle who enjoys bitching about our family's usual pumpkin pie. it was a hit. i always feel grateful to spend time with my family. (and i loved this thanksgiving toast in the new york times yesterday.)
i have more news and things to share with you in the next day or so. enjoy your weekend!
