Monday mashup: a little rendez-vous and a lot of food

Photos of me by Alex

This past weekend I mingled with some fantastic bloggers at rendez-vouz: new england. We gathered at Grey's Fabric & Notion -- a cute fabric boutique in the heart of SoWa  -- and chatted about blogging while devouring grilled cheese sandwiches from Roxy's food truck. The weather was gorgeous -- high 60s and sunny -- and I wore my new favorite skirt (BCBG), my old favorite jacket (H&M), and carried a picnic basket (an $8 thrift store find) instead of a purse.
Back on the home front, I successfully used all of of my Costco peaches by making Eat Live Run's Earl Grey peach preserves. It turned out surprisingly well -- even though I swapped out the Earl Grey tea for English Breakfast. I ended the weekend by baking an apple-caramel cupcake -- potentially the perfect fall dessert -- which I'll share the recipe for tomorrow.
