1) I am doing a quick edit on images from Jane’s first surfing lesson this morning. So much fun! Never mind getting excited when she got up; I squee’d like an idiot from the moment he put the leash around her ankle. I’ll probably blog them tomorrow.
Speaking of Jane, I just noticed this on Uncentered’s Facebook page:
Isn’t that sweet? It was a win-win, too, because in addition to helping someone in need, (their belongings were lost in the Goose Creek apartment complex fire) and donating some of her beloved clothes (including her very favorite shirt-she insisted) , she also cleaned out her drawers of all the adorable preppy clothes I favor and she isn’t interested in. You can raise the girl in the Lowcountry but you can’t make her wear madras plaid.
Please head over, check them out, and “Like” their page. You never know when they’ll need something you have!
2) After a weekend with You Don’t Know Jacques by OPI on my toes, I realized that this color resonates with me because it’s the exact color of pluff mud. Relatedly, in terms of hue, my husband and I ate at Il Cortile Del Re on King Street Friday night. He highly recommends the lobster ravioli, and as a connaisseur of caprese salads, I can say that theirs is absolutely fantastic.
Anyway, he was telling me a story about an old couch that wasn’t gray and wasn’t brown but was somewhere in between. “Right, I said. ‘Taupe.”
“Yeah,” he says. “That in between color.”
“It’s taupe. Now you know the correct term! Try it out.”
“Yeahhh…” he says, “That color between gray and brown.”
Maybe real men don’t say taupe.
3) There is a chocolatier in Charleston. Like, a dude who uses fresh high quality ingredients and whips up chocolate bars and sauces in his kitchen, and hand-delivers them to select merchants. How did I not know this? How was this not #1 on my list? I tried the Sea is for Caramel. Just doing my part to support local small businesses. And, you know. Antioxidants.
Check it out. The packaging alone is worth buying a bar. I didn’t want to take off the paper.
