Double rainbows have nothing on Heirloom tomatoes.

So today was an eventful day, I had a really good call back for a big commercial print campaign.  After that I got a haircut and grab some quick-lunch.  Washed it down with a coffee from La Colombe.  It was GOOD!  But I wish more coffee places would start using ice cubes made from extra strong coffee so it wont dilute the drink.  I love the vibe of this place, no menus, no big signs with a billion complicated drinks.  You go in, order whatever you want.  You pay, they give you the lid for your drink and you step down and wait.

Union Sq Farmers Market
While walking around on a cloudy day in union sq the last thing i expected to see was bright colors.  But its tomato season!  Non of the stay fresh genetically modified red-ish things that stay fresh for weeks but taste like bland mush.  Heirloom tomatoes in every color you could imagine.   I’ve become a lover of whats in season.  As i walked down the farmers market, i see professional chefs, foodies with cameras, and parents all thinking one thing “What’s for dinner”.   I guess having the luxury of spending your late afternoon picking out fresh produce for dinner isn’t something everyone can do.   But sometimes you just have to do it.  I thought about making a fresh caprese salad, canning some of them for the winter, or just biting in to one like an apple.   yumm

A quick walk to Kiehl’s for some bottle recycling.  I had no idea if you bring back your empties they let you trade them in for Kiehl’s products.  Good marketing strategy.  It drags you back in to purchase more stuff and load up on samples! haha

My Favorite place to end the night.
What is it about cupcakes that just make you want to smile?  Especially hazelnut chocolate frosted ones.

Interview with another agency tomorrow! Fingers Crossed!

So I really wanted to start writing in here more often instead of just dumping pictures from my phone and posting them up.

So the question is,, where do i start? I wanted to start with a picture i took today but then what about all of the other pictures i didnt post yet? Should i leave a gap? Should i just post all of the pictures again? Should i delete all of the picture post and redo them ALL? shit

ahh fuck it. I’ll just do it this last time but will limit myself in the future and actullay write something to acompany the picture. Starting tomorrow. lets see how long i can keep this up!

I was cutting class and received a call

I said you’re joking right?

I had cold sweats.

I went to class.

I saw the news.

I panicked.

I contacted my loved ones and family.

I stepped outside and it snowed ashes.

I rushed home thinking it was the end of the world.

I heart stopped when i saw people jump.

I cringed every time i heard the screams or sirens.

I cried when I realized how many people would not be coming home that night.

I will never forget.

rest in peace
