Our own Capitol Hill Abbey? Speaking of Abbey, Season 5 of Downton just started in the UK. Unfortunately, this means we won’t see it in the states for yet another couple of months. P.S. it sounds like George Clooney is making an appearance.

We are on a Boiling Point kick. Make sure to try the leafy green “Crown Daisy,” it’s a great hot pot addition, and extremely fibrous (nothing wrong with that!).

New wide leg cropped pants from Zara. They’re perfect for the transition from Seattle’s hot Summer to breezy Fall season. I also expect them to work well for our trip to Hong Kong and Taipei coming up (32 days away, but “who’s counting?”)

 

Yum.
