    Beautiful photo’s, I especially enjoyed the one of that sweet little girl amidst the mosses.

  8. Jennie says:

    Jen, thanks so much for posting this. I’ve so been wishing I could be there with you and Shauna, and this brought a little of that dream to life. xo

  9. shauna says:

    Jen, we LOVE you. Those photos of Lucy made us all say “Ohh!” We showed this to Lu and she pointed out everyone she knew, said their names. When we said, “Who took those photos?” she smiled and said, “JEN!”

  10. Nicole says:

    Makes me miss Washington so very much. Beautiful photos, beautiful people.

  11. barbara says:

    Lovely photos Jen. Love Lu’s skirt and boots.

  12. ursula says:

    i’d like to sample the cabbage and pork belly salad!

  13. Lael Hazan @educatedpalate says:

    The photo of Lucy looking at the food belongs on the cover of a book! What an eye you have, you bring the viewer into the magic of the moment.

  14. Dana says:

    Jen, I’m so glad I got to be a part of your whirlwind trip. Love your eye and your enthusiasm for our wet city. Safe travels and looking forward to seeing you next time!

  15. justcooknyc says:

    maybe it goes without saying, but i love these photos… love!

  16. Twila Moon says:

    Jen – I know this sounds completely ridiculous, but I’m sure we’re destined to meet – place to be determined! My family is in Boulder, I happen to be in Seattle simultaneously, and we have a shared acquaintance. I know that really only adds up to three, but why not? Can’t wait to spot you photographing pastries or something else yummy. And hope you are staying dry – I know I didn’t today :) – Twila

  17. Home with Mandy says:

    What great photos. It’s hard to pick my favorite, but it just might be the picture of your friends dog. The expression on his face is so funny…he just wasn’t a fan, was he???

  18. Peta says:

    I love your photos, those daffodils look so good.

  19. The Italian Dish says:

    Seattle – my very favorite place.

    I’m jealous.

  20. Joy says:

    I love love the pics of the flowers.

  21. Magpie says:

    Loved hanging out with you, especially at dinner last night.

  22. Michelle Woo says:

    Loved meeting you this weekend, Jen. You’re so much fun! And your photos are stunning. Happy Sunday, lady!

  23. Marisa says:

    It was so, so good to see you this weekend! I just wish I could have gotten into town a little earlier so I could have crashed one of those gorgeous meals!

  24. Barb Gornick says:

    Very gorgeous photos!! Love your photography, your cooking and seeing it all. Thanks in the past for the very best chocolate chip cookies ever!!

  25. Karma Pema says:

    I just want to say THANK YOU :)

  26. jenyu says:

    Thanks guys! I’m especially fond of the lucy pic because of those pink cowboy boots – how cute is that?!

    Allison – I know, right? She was too cute in those boots to NOT take a picture (or 20) :)

    Margie – isn’t she adorable? Really special little girl.

    Jennie – someday we are going to have a Kingsford reunion and it’s going to be awesome with all of you guys. In the meantime I send you a big hug every day!

    Shauna – thank you for that lovely day together. All of the great food, conversation, time together, and especially time with Lu. You guys are so very sweet. xo

    ursula – it was SO good and out of this world!

    Lael – you’re too sweet, dear. It’s all Lucy, not me!! :)

    Dana – thanks for meeting up for lunch despite your busy schedule. Loved getting to talk and catch up xoxo

    justcooknyc – thanks Justin! Next time I hope you’ll be in those shots!

    Twila Moon – dry is a relative term, no? ha ha! Seattle and Boulder have such different climates, but I love both. Have to say I think I love the food and blogger scene of Seattle more though! :)

    Home with Mandy – he totally wasn’t! ;)

    Magpie – likewise! So lovely to meet you and spend time together! xo

    Michelle – awww, I wish we had ended up at the same restaurant! I’m glad we could hang out during the Nintendo event though :)

    Marisa – me too. Tea and I were bemoaning that you couldn’t be there with us :( But I’m glad we could hang out at dinner.
