It’s so hard to believe that just a week ago, I had to wear a beanie to keep warm. Yesterday, I was on the beach, wearing a bikini top and jeans with my feet in the sand. Life leads us through some crazy situations, but the only way to weather it is to keep both a beanie and a bikini handy.
I threw my plans for a lazy Saturday to the wind when I read that @trevoromorain was going to be making gyoza and kakigori at @proper_sake_co! Luckily I have some friends who are more than happy to appease my foodie needs. (Thanks @diningwithdeliajo, @paulhramsey, and @kernel colonel!)
The gyoza was incredible, but man... the shaved ice, condensed milk, whipped cream, and freeze dried Concord grapes made for one heck of a frozen treat! Kakigori is a Japanese treat that is typically made with shaved ice, flavored syrup, and some sort of sweetener. Surprisingly I never actually had any when we were in Japan!
Make sure to keep an eye out for the next time Trevor is at Proper Sake- hanging out in their lounge, snacking on some delicious Japanese treats is the perfect way to spend a fall afternoon!
Halibut - Radiatore - Squid Ink Linguini. The cocktails were delicious, space was lovely, service team was outstanding, and the food was almost perfection (slightly undercooked calamari). @redhendc #afoodlife#willtravelforfood
Kalsoy, Faroe Islands: The morning we headed to Kalsoy from Klaksvik, we witnessed the most stunning sunrise I've ever seen in my life. The photos almost haunt me though, reminding me of the hundreds of sunsets I've slept through on my travels. How do you manage the desire to do and see everything with the need for sleep and relaxation? I have SUCH a hard time balancing this! Joe is more of a sleeper than I am, so sometimes I stay up late or get up early to pack a few more hours into the day, but it's a fine line to avoid getting exhausted or burnt out. #hungerlustfaroe#kalsoy#sunriseoftheday

Our head baker and assistant general manager came to us after a stint in California with Great Dane, George, in tow 🌞🐶 Outside of Honeycomb Brita is one busy lady, juggling freelance food photography (find her @withflourinherhair), writing and catering! 👩🏻🍳📷 She also makes time to hit Crane Beach as often as possible, one of her favorite Northshore spots 🌊
3 yr old Great Dane named George - He's a big goof ball just like me 🙂 He's the best travel companion, loves the snow and only drinks fresh water out of the faucet - (Diva).

I’m a professional photographer. I majored in photojournalism and food studies. I was a photographer day dreaming of fresh bread and seasonal pies..so why not put the two together? 🥧🥖

Cappuccinos are my favorite travel splurge. Typically I like black coffee, but there is something about a proper cappuccino at breakfast that just makes me feel like I'm on a real vacation. If I'm lucky enough, I even get to drink it at the perfect temperature because Bella is easily distracted by a fabulous breakfast buffet :) What is your favorite way to indulge while traveling?
