October 2007. Baltimore, Maryland. The gang and I as a pumpkin patch.

The last seven days have been pretty amazing. An extremely good-looking guy took me out to dinner and I ate like a queen. I saw Gillian Welch at The Beacon Theatre, had brunch at The Northern Spy, dinner at Balthazar (disappointing), watched a screening of My Week with Marilyn and The Artist, had Indian food accompanied by a sitar and saw The Civil Wars at the Town Hall.

I love how busy I am, but with this busyness comes sacrifices. In Baltimore, I had a lot of time to cook, bake, draw, paint, and be festive when holidays came around. Suddenly, it's Halloween and all I have done is set out my ghost bowl and filled it with candy corn. No pumpkin carving, no pumpkin-baking, no dressing up... nothing. I haven't even been able to delve into soup season (butternut squash & sweet potato soup, my brother's favorite vegetable soup, leek & potato soup, chili.. etc.). I have to find that balance, but it's hard when you're shuttling between two places, none of which feel like Home.

Have a fun Halloweekend.
